Mama recalled as hows she 'membered her first hearin bout red toad stew.
was down in by the swamps
everything bad comes from dem swamps
dats where tha voo-doooooo folks hide.

Gotsa member dat voo-d000000 folks aintin the sames as Vooooooooo-doo folks
dark cries
dark sighs
death be in the darkness
death be in dose red toads.

Fine folks dinin' on big ole reggalur frog legs
thaynkin it taste lik chicken
ain't never gonna know how wunnerful red toad stew is.
cause they don't never go inna the swamps
they aint never kissed no voo-doooooooo lover.

did I hint red toad is poisin?
not always
not iffin you know how to respect the red toad.
it has to want to come to you
invite it in
iffin it comes
then it is ready to die for you.

catch it and it is payzin
not soes you can taste or smell it bein no diffren
but in 4 days you be dead
no one can tell what kilt ya
no doctor will find it
but the voo-dooooooo folks'll know

soes if you are ever invited to share red toad stew
be shore ya are eatin it wit friends
voo-dooooooooo friends

and save a bite for me

I'm saving you the legs. And by the way your poem/story was brilliant. Thanks for that my butter buddy.

Hey, like it! Afraid the red toads and voodoos got froze out this time - swamps had ice.

Regards,

I think I need more sleep--

my mind just comes up with this stuff,
feel free to use it when your show is on at MOMA,
they like to have poetry to accompany the visual art

maybe you could call it the

Red Toad Butter Exhibition

The tit the red frog and the slices in the neck.

Or is it
An eye for an eye, or a tit for a tit.
Or is it
A tit for a tit, or an eye for an eye.
Or is it
A tit for an eye or an eye for a tit.

Now I am totally confused. Is anyone else?

I would love to know everyone's interpretation of this painting.

Red toads are poisonous. Be careful what is served up on a platter.

But Artby - Even if they are heart shaped? Oh, Glory be.

"Neigh, Neigh,"
said the horse
to the very fine toad.
"You are not Sunday's supper.
You are Monday's instead."

Or perhaps there are Cossacks. Or perhaps there are Cossack's horses where one wishes there were reins...............

Red toad, red toad, shaped like a heart. Your lure is irresistible yet your poison is known. Whose trap is set as you are served like voodoo on a plate?

Artby, I wish I knew. But I do know one thing - we will both be dead!

Perhaps I should have titled it "From Russia with a Shashka."

Shashka = a Cossack's weapon.

I see the pink frog has turned red-orange. This is great, Nikki, (I especially love that hair) and Greggo, do love that swamp poetry.

I like the lighting on the left side, and the colors are rich

this is really cool. I love how much texture it has and the abstract nature of the piece as well.
