Decoyed Ducks Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Decoyed Ducks



Camouflaged and taught,
Not to quack or waddle.
But stride with a swagger,
To disguise the fact...
They had been employed,
As decoyed ducks.
But their strutting around hens,
Loving to gossip.
And not doing it with them,
Only attracted more suspicions...
When those decoyed ducks,
Began to teach younger chickens...
How to swim without webbed feet.
And to believe they could live,
Lives to never be hen peckers.
Or petty nitpickers quick to judge others,
Based upon appearances alone.

Camouflaged and taught,
Not to quack or waddle.
But stride with a swagger,
To disguise the fact...
They had been employed,
As decoyed ducks.
Can never take away to erase permanently,
Who or what...
That which has been created to be.
No matter the cost paid to create new disguises.
Or diminish intended and meant personalities.
Each thing created has its own mission as a fate.
Often in the movies are these journeys faked.

Funds no longer available to give up,
Have a way of returning reality back...
To where it should have been left.
Alone not to deceive.
Only precious time wasted takes this to believe.
