That toad

No verse today,
just a note to say
the opportunistic toad
has taken up
permanent residence
on the side of my home,
coming out each and every night
to slap tongue onto flying insects
wandering too close to the ground.
Sort of pet,
Protector of the light
Moocher, evening pal
Not responding to my
"Howdy neighbor"
Because he is too busy
Looking for a handout.
