The Doppelganger Effect

Updated on August 10, 2018
Is it,"NIce to see you", or "Get lost June bug"?
Is it,"NIce to see you", or "Get lost June bug"?

Feeling froggie, then jump!

One moment they are happy, to give a pleasant demeanor,

The next one, a change in personality, face looking meaner.

A true split in personality is a reflection, seems to duplicate,

Only a difference seen in their attitudes, attempt to replicate.

Each statement a provision, its opposition, every other word,

As they like to tweet, instead of meet, bird language is heard.

Saying all yeas yesterday changes all Naes of the day before,

What tomorrow brings, is a dependent thing, of what's in store.

"Hello, I'm just a frog like you", or" I'm king of the swamp"
"Hello, I'm just a frog like you", or" I'm king of the swamp"

Doppelganger, you might have been better off as a kangaroo,

As you hop around, to and fro, not in knowing all that you do.

If you were a frog in another pond, you'd have to sink or swim,

But as it stands and seen today, your actions, done on a whim.

A yes, yes, yes, or a no, no, no, throwing in a few "I don't knows",

Maybe it's right, or wouldn't it be so, if it would, it's the way it goes.

Are no set standards of your bad language, we must guess a lot,

As you communicate, for pity's sake, never know what we just got.

Please don't look at the world upside-down...
Please don't look at the world upside-down...

Doppelganger, a German word, meaning a double walker, is so,

Meaning to some a "Ghostly Double", as an evil twin, in folklore.

If you actually knew what evil is, you just may not put on a show,

But alas, when you're out of gas, every practical event, you blow.

One day soon we'll no longer placate, deal with your shenanigans,

Laws of the pond, drawn up by gators, will take it out of our hands.

Be content, flick your tongue, enjoying skeeters as long as you can,

Remember, if you're a double, it's asking for trouble, do understand.

The frog receives his if he cares...
The frog receives his if he cares...

        I like seeing your frog again. He's an attractive fellow. Your poem is an interesting description of a doppelganger.
