Two frogs fell into a deep cream bowl.
One was an optimistic soul,
But the other took the gloomy view.
"We shall drown," he sobbed with much ado!
And with a last despairing cry,
He flung up his legs and said, "Good-bye!"
Said the other frog with merry grin,
"I can't get out, but I won't give in.
I'll just swim around till my strength is spent,
Then will I die the more content!"
Bravely he swam till it would seem
His struggles began to churn the cream!
On top of the butter at last he stopped,
And out of the bowl he happily hopped!
So what is the moral? 'Tis easily found;
If you can't hop out, keep swimming around!
