Two frogs fell into a can of cream Or so I’ve heard it told The sides of the can were shiny and steep, The cream was deep and cold, “Oh, what’s the use?” said No. 1, “tis fate — no help’s around — Good-bye, my friend! Good-bye, cruel world!” And weeping still, he drowned. But No. 2 of sterner stuff, Kept paddling, which was wise,. Then while he wiped his creamy face And dried his creamy eyes. “I’ll swim awhile, at least,” he thought This cream I still can tread “It wouldn’t really help the world If one more frog was dead.” An hour or two he kicked and swam — Not once he stopped to mutter, But kicked and swam, and swam and kicked, Then hopped out, on butter.
That frothy little poem by an unknown author gives a picture of the difference a positive Christian attitude can make as we choose to redeem the time.
