duck pond


today i saw a duck
at our local pond
he said 'how you doing chuck'
then i did respond

asking how are you
too that water bird
delving down it threw a shoe
then i cursed a word

git i shouted out at it
'what did you just say'
then i took another hit
by a can of hairspray

'look at what we deal with
every single blinking day
this is less than a fifth
so take your rubbish away'

tins of spam
cans of coke
legs of lamb
things all broke
its a flipping sham

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
