tadpole makes desperate suggestion …
Exactly one minute later…
As the *behemoth loomed in,
getting ready to bite…
Tad shouted “WAIT!”
“Do we really need to fight?!”
And staring into it’s eyes
[with things looking progressively dire]
he sheepishly asked, “what if the first one to blink …
does whatever the other desires?”
(‘Well I had decided not to eat it,
but I’m impressed all the same!
What courage this thing has!
I think I’ll play his little game…’)
