    said dear frog what is it that you blog
    the frog looked up he paused then sighed
    my dear friend to the blue mule replied
    There was a fog where my best friend died
    oh how on that day I cried and cried
    And vowed to her where she belied
    I won't forget - you were my bride!
    The blue mule was sad at this reply
    said why did your bride have to die
    was it a fox wanting frog pie
    oh tell me please though it's so hard try!
    The frog just jumped nine feet high
    went on his way with no goodbye!

    The blue mule stood beside the cliff
    pondering lifes unknowingness
    unanswered questions attacking his brain
    why am i here?
    why am i blue?
    is there anything i can do?

    seeking solace in the emptyness of air
    finding none, only dispair
    he hobbled back to his pond
    he watched as his friends carry on
    and decided he must do the same
    solve only the questions you can today
    what to eat?
    when to sleep?
    because the question of "is there more?"
    seemed far too deep
    for a simple blue mule to seek
