Tree Frog

by Bill Schott

Living forever should never include

such horror, but let me tell you how rude.

Agreement with a creature

included this feature. 

Holding a talking frog in my hands

was as the situation stands.

The amphibian tried to escape

leading me to my fate.

"Release me, for a wish,"

said that lying wannabe fish.

"To live forever!" I shouted. 

"Okay," the frog spouted.

Now I’m a tree, near a cabin

where I found the frog, before his backstabbin'.  

The cabin owner apparently wished

to never exhaust firewood -- capisce?  

I’m painfully chopped down each day

and grow back overnight. Horror! Ow! Hey!
