The ghoulish laughter rang in the air
There was a underlying streak of glee too
I knew what was coming my way, as there was
Just one thing that would give him so much joy
The little boy rushed in his palms cupped protectively
Around something that was meant as a surprise for me
Laughing hysterically he opened his small hand to reveal
Something green sitting docilely staring without interest at me
“Look grandma I brought you a present” he said as
The “present” made a leap for freedom right towards my face
And I barely avoided swallowing a frog,
I will never understand the fascination little boys have
For all things yucky and dirty
But you’ve to love them for their adorable sentiments
