Frogs was originally written for Café Doom Flash Challenge number 85, in November 2007, in response to the prompt word boil. It came fifth equal out of nine entries, with no votes whatsoever.
Frogs was briefly published on Adrian Graham's blog, but was otherwise unpublished prior to its inclusion in Dot Dash.
Frogs is a literal interpretation of the "boiling a frog" metaphor. In the first draft, there was an explicit reference to climate change, but I took this out, because it seemed more than a little obvious.
