Hop-Frog they called him, for he couldn’t walk He jumped and wriggled about. His companion, Trippetta, on the other hand, Was elegant out and out. She and Hop-Frog, kidnapped when young Were together always, forever bound. And if anyone dared to hurt the girl, Hop-Frog attacked them like a hound. This talented pair aided the king In preparing for every ball So on the day of a masquerade, They entered into his hall. This could be seen in his court fool: Very short, and crippled at that: He was ‘a jester to laugh with, And a dwarf to laugh at.’
The king and advisers needed a plan For the ball, almost begun But first they wanted some pain- That is to say, some ‘fun.’ Drink would drive poor Hop-Frog mad So of course the king made him drink But Trippetta begged the evil man To stop and of her friend think.
