Perhaps I may have only two

Choices, but I still fancy that

I am not a shrew.

 

Whom should I kiss;

The frog or the snake?

The snake, he might hiss

The frog, he might fake

 

Shall I kiss the snake who has a poisonous bite?

Or shall I kiss the frog who is ugly with all his might?

My friends say,

"The snake, the snake!  What a horrible frog!"

 

And I reply,

"But what if the frog turns out to be a handsome prince?"

 

The snake with his cunning, gleaming eye

The frog with his warty, disgusting slime

However, I shall not take a chance

Nor will I submit to others' trance

 

And so I choose the frog

But alas, the frog

Is merely a frog.

Perhaps I should have listened after all

As now I see that he was not a snake,

But a  mighty dragon
