A laughing matter it is not,
that Bigwig may have been taken by a fox.
For Hazel and Dawn he was, by all accounts, their hero,
the leader of the duck pack.
A nice chap who had a terribly cute quack,
he was often seen chasing Twilight around the pond
and saying ‘don’t come any nearer’ (well I think that was what he said) .
Anyway, he certainly put the fear in and took fur out of her
– which was very entertaining for us to say the least.
He was exceptionally good looking, well mannered, tough and strong
and with that bouffant head of hair of his he could do no wrong.
He’ll be sadly missed by all of us for a long time to come
so to keep the two girls happy (and you as well)
we’re going to get another one and maybe this time, fit a bell.
For if that fox returns for more,
this little duck will have some surprise in store.
He’ll shake his head, bouffant and all,
and frighten the poor fox away for evermore.
