Return of a Childhood Friend - Balloon Frog

 Dr Abe V Rotor 

Balloon Frog - Uperodon globulosus (U. systoma?)

I don't know your true name, and never did care

ever since I was a child; 
you were, as other kids on the farm, called you
tukak bat-og - fat bellied;

our ways parted: I, to school, and you, to where 
fantasia had ended; 
endangered almost to extinction, I was told; 
but down the river bed, 
I found you like the Phoenix bird resurrected, 
where I dared not  thread. ~
