lyrics

A group of boys had a thought.
Uncaring minds ventured off
to the lagoon where the boys would play,
to the lagoon where their targets lay,
where one frog would say,

"Saw small humans walking near the pond.
Smiling eyes concealing a facade.
Much too late for us to pray to god.
Not even time to forge a foolish fraud.
We'd surely not expected what was coming at our heads.

Oh, please don't throw those pebbles at my friends.
Your heartless stone throws bring our lives to deaths.
To you it's sport, but to us it's simply slaughter in disguise"

Lack of humility, those boys had made their mark.
Upside down in symmetry, each frog would disembark
their body as each soul had to escape from the annihilation bed.

Hard earth flew from skies into the pool.
Crushed green bodies, killers are so cruel.
With just one frog left, a scratch mark on his head.
The aftermath had left so many dead,
The boys had left, while the frog would speak, and this is what he said,

“Oh, please don't throw those pebbles at my friends.
Your heartless stone throws bring our lives to deaths.
To you it's sport, but to us it's simply slaughter in disguise.
Rib’, rib’ rib’, rib’.”

about

Juniperus Saskatchewan

In 2013, Jeffrey Popiel began a solo project titled 'Juniperus'. His inspired originals have more recently taken on a new life with the pursuit of ÆSOP's Fables. While these new 'fable songs' reside in the realm of folk, they present themselves in a diverse way, by using distinct voicing for each character, and swaying between genres, such as ambient folk, quirky pop, and folky blues. ... more
