Stopping By Poetry.Com on a Sunny Afternoon

by Freemont Perot

A short word of explanation: several other Alert Readers submitted parodies of Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." This poem was my response.

On reading all of these poems
One thought has me feeling lost:
Why does "the dog ate mother's toes"
Make so many think of Frost?
