A Frog, a Stick, and a Whole Lot of Ladybugs


by jack prelutsky





A frog, a stick



a shell, a stone


a paper clip,
a chicken bone.



a feather quill


a piece of string
a lady bug,


a beetle wing
a greenish wad
of bubble gum

 

assorted keys
and cookie crumbs.


a maple leaf,
a candy bar,
a rubber band
a model car.
potato chips,



and soggy fries
plus something
i can't recognize.


a broken watch
a plastic cow...


that's what's inside
my pockets now.


ladybugs, feathers, and a whole lot more
