...about a frog

this particular frog burrows wherever it does

and freezes when winter blows through

literally almost freezes

the blood stops flowing

and organs stop pumping

putting itself in a sort of suspended animation until spring

and then I was thinking

why humans couldn't do the same

and then I remembered

we are here to do something more important

than freezing ourselves or eating bugs

I came to this realization

after I looked around and saw

all the things we had built

    I think about random stuff like this too. I like the optimism in the ending.
