Two frogs fell into a large cream bowl:
One was an optimistic soul,
But the other took the gloomy view,
"We shall drown" he cried, without more ado.
So with a last despairing cry
He flung up his legs and said "Goodbye."
Said the other frog with a merry grin,
"I can't get out, but I won't give in.
I'll just swim around till my strength is spent
And should I drown I'll be the more content."
Bravely he swam till it would seem
His struggles began to churn the cream.
On top of the butter at last he stopped,
And out of the bowl he gayly hopped.
What is the moral? Tis easily found:
If you can't hop right out, keep swimming round
