Duckfeathers - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
They say that water, with some luck
runs off the feathers of a duck
which means I think that feathers would
keep dry the ducks as well they should.
And why would ducks, I ask, wear feathers
if unprotected in all weathers,
they might as well go waddle nude,
though naked ducks look rather rude.
If you can see a different meaning
in this, perhaps to do with preening,
or something else entirely
let me invite you to feel free
to write a poem about ducks
but do not say that this one sucks.
