The Power of Reason



A frog, a newt, jumped in,

For their morning swim.

A hungry pike was waiting.

A flash, a splash, a dash,

An artificial lure rotating.

The frog looked, the newt too,

Their fear now dissipating.

The pike they saw could fly,

Spat, they knew not what or why?

But thanked it for their salvation.

The question is, “Did they,

Look before they jumped”?

The answer, believe it, oh yes.

Their life on a  look depended.

A pikes camouflage, perfection.

Deceived them  as was  intended.

A lure, a chance intervention.

All three surprised

Still have their lives

The power of reason, offended!
