The blistering sun is all round

Under a log I have found
A tired out frog stuck in the ground

He gave up listening for the sound
Of water making its honest way down

What could anybody do to help our little friend?
Some would say we carry on and let him find the end
There are flies all around, they're bothering the horse
Let us bring the 'phib about and live from now with us

I lowered my body carefully down
Cautiously making nary a sound

I tried to explain where we were bound
Being that we had not yet there found

"The blistering sun is all round"
He said in his croak, tongue all wound

So it be that we must leave behind our little friend
Some would call it cruel of us to leave him to his end
This one seems resigned to hopelessly dry out and die
It pains me to see such a thing, but still I say goodbye
