Two Springboard Poems Plus One Apology To Robert Frost

________________________________________________________________________________________________

but the parrot
called the police

After curiosity
bit the dog
and got a
mouthful
of fleas.

***
***

Two roads diverged
in a yellow wood
where I wore a pair
of old brown shoes

Around me did snooze
three carpenter ants
two farmer potato bugs
and a priestly
praying mantis

  1. Dear Parrot,
    That's how you call the police.
    Pick up the phone, and just squawk.

    1. Dear Ms. Anonymous
      Maybe we should get a parrot
      then we will do less of the squawking.
