I saw a thing on facebook today, courtesy of the humor author Larry Weiner, who posted an old video on laser disk of Bill Murray doing tongue twisters. Anyway, here’s the poem. It’s genius. Never heard it before today:
The two toed tree toad:
A tree-toad loved a she-toad
Who lived up in a tree.
He was a two-toed tree-toad,
But a three-toed toad was she.
The two-toed tree-toad tried to win
The three-toed she-toad’s heart,
For the two-toed tree-toad loved the ground
That the three-toed tree-toad trod.
But the two-toed tree-toad tried in vain,
He couldn’t please her whim.
From her tree-toad bower,
With her three-toed power,
The she-toad vetoed him.
