Basho

There once was a frog, rather stout,
who, bored, by an old pond hung out.
Then he thought with a grin.
I think I’ll jump in,
And give Basho something to write about!

Based, of course, on Basho’s classic haiku: furuike ya / kawazu tobikomu / mizu no oto:

An old pond
a frog jumps in
the sound of water

Thanks to H. Mack Horton for this
