The Flood

A toad
A fat toad
A croaking, fat toad
Hopping alongside the river

A blue river
A blue, clean river
A blue, clean river before the rain came

Torrential rain
Torrential, never ending rain
That did not stop until it ruined the riverbank

A flooded riverbank
A flooded, washed away riverbank
The waterlogged home of the toad

A toad
A thin toad
A thin, silent toad
