Froggies in a Mailbox

I go to our mailbox and open it up.

This is a rural mailbox and as I walk to it an eagle flies overhead talking about something. I wonder what I'll find in the mailbox -- somebody talking about something? A check? An order for some books? A long overdue bill?

I open the box and look within and ...

What do I see
two little froggies blinking at me

I pick up a long flat sealed envelope

One of the froggies is stuck to it

jumps on my forearm
sticks like glue

Lorry asks, "What is that stuck to you?"

Never a dull day
no bill, no check, no order

A gold-eyed frog
the size of a quarter
