means those without tail, the genre of frogs
who are mostly carnivores like us:
who also have no tails because we sit
on our butt to ponder our dilemma.
Like us, they perform intricate dances
in an effort to attract a fair mate,
sometimes showing off their ability
to lick flies out of the transparent air.
Frogs are sacred to god Dionysos.
Poets and dramatists are descended
from frogs, retain ancestral memory.
Just as frogs are declining globally,
there are fewer poets due to tv.
