The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?

I would like to answer this with a poem what I wrote. 'Clomp Thump, Swamp Lump, Plodding in the Ooze, Belly Shiver, Jelly Quiver, Squelching in my shoes, Clomp Thump, Romp Jump, Mulching all the Mud, Boot Trudge, Foot Sludge, Thud thud thud.'
