Twenty one giant frogs
are dotted around the town,
their thick plastic skin painted
in bright colours. One looks like Spider-Man.
They live to bring the community together
after a difficult 19 months.
The Frog Wardens are wearing lily pad green
t-shirts above pond blue jeans.
Please don’t sit or stand or climb on the frogs.
They are patrolling the area
to ensure children are enjoying the trail
designed for them to count them all
and be exposed to art and imagination
to an appropriate degree.
