“UPON THE FROG” By John Bunyan

 

UPON THE FROG

  The frog by nature is both damp and cold,
  Her mouth is large, her belly much will hold;
  She sits somewhat ascending, loves to be
  Croaking in gardens, though unpleasantly.

 

Comparison

  The hypocrite is like unto this frog,
  As like as is the puppy to the dog.
  He is of nature cold, his mouth is wide
  To prate, and at true goodness to deride.
  He mounts his head as if he was above
  The world, when yet ‘tis that which has his love.
  And though he seeks in churches for to croak,
  He neither loveth Jesus nor his yoke.

John Bunyan, vol. 3, A Book for Boys and Girls (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2006), 758.
