400 frogs

400 frogs
go ribbit rrrrrr ribbit
and hop and jump

but you won’t ever get them
to jump at the same time
to croak at the same time

not even with 400 flies
trained to fly their curious vectors
in unison
and hover tantalizingly
just in jumping range

400 files
well plumped and
groomed with frog bait,
trained to make
the ultimate sacrifice

trained to believe
the righteous cause
of getting 400 frogs
to all jump at once
is worth
suicide
