From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups

My frog has got a steering wheel,
a radio, a door,
a hefty V-8 engine
and a stick shift on the floor.

My frog is a convertible
with comfy leather seats.
I drive my frog to go to work
or cruise around the streets.

But now my frog is missing.
Though parked it on the road,
I didn’t plug the meter
and it must have gotten toad.
