Hop and Skip

Hop and Skip

Hop and Skip were green elder toads.
They are older than time and have seen the dinosaurs
They’ve seen the wars, their children die, and plagues
People may see that as a blessing, living forever
Hop and Skip, however, see it as a curse
They’ve stuck together through it all.
Through everything they are companions.

Even as the times pass, it seems they never change
Hop is the intellectual with a love for knowledge
Skip is a fun-loving adventurer and trailblazer
Hop prefers the inside and rainy days with a book
Skip prefers the rush of bungee jumping in the sun
Yin to each other’s Yang

Through everything, they are friends.
