Poem 14- Words

It was a hot muggy evening

I was in my raincoat

Carrying jars

Steam rose up from the grates

My elbow hurt

The jars were heavy

Frogs were everywhere,

Basking in their new sauna

Tomatoes were hiding behind every bush

It was a mystery

I couldn’t blame them

The children had been unusually destructive

I swore I would rescue them all,

Children, Tomatoes and Frogs

I tripped, I broke the jars

Rescue mission aborted
