Mom and Dad will pick and peck
At ev'ry sub-invisible speck,
Cleaning up the total lot 
For newly metamorphosed tot.
So for the tads there's little thanks
For limbing in parental tanks.
If good frog midwife you would be,
Remove these young as suits specie,
As egg or tad or morphling small,
To separate dwelling place withal.
And pampered there
Without a care
They'll have a chance to grow up fair.
