9 June – Rescue mission

Double, double toil and trouble,
notice stagnant drain bubble.
Amphibious limbs stirring the stew
can’t leap out or break through
plastic pipe to find relief
from impending, final sleep,
suddenly lowered in kindly stoop
a ladle comes, full size of the soup.
Deus ex machina! Not a moment to soon,
frog soars to safety on flying spoon.
