A hiccup is not the same as a burp,
And neither is it a type of a slurp.
As a frog, people think I’m a twirp.
I do croak, and I do not chirp.
If I hit a bump in the pond,
It makes my body want to respond.
The lily pads are very fond
Of my ability to hop beyond.
I am not rude, or crass, or crude.
I hiccup when I’m in a good mood.
I drink water to make it conclude,
And I always have great gratitude!
