Musical Proposition – Toad Song

This is a gift to any musician out there who wants our current Toad-in-Chief out of office.  I don’t know if the words work, but if you feel like putting them to music, tinkering them into something that does work and can fight back against the current kleptocrats sucking the fun out of the world.  Go for it!  Make a hit and drive them into the ground.  (All I want is a word credit and some peace of mind)  Thanks!


Vainglorious toad croaking in the swamp,

he sings,

“This is not a stinking swamp,

now that I am here.

The other toads are sing lies,

the other toads you hear.

This is not a swamp no more,

now that I am here!


Am I not the royal toad?

The bestist toad you hear,

the other toads are lying Lord!

Now that I am here.”


And closer does the serpent slink,

the loudest toad it hears.

It knows it lives in slimy swamp,

and croaking toads are near.
