A Duck Makes Me Laugh

By Nona Keen Duffy

I think that a duck,
As he waddles around,
Is peculiar enough
When he stays on the ground.

And he’s funny to watch
When he goes for a swim,
But when he dives under
I laugh at him!

Does he know how odd
He looks, I wonder,
With his bottom half up,
And his top half under?

The youngster brightened a bit, but tears still fell. “What about my change?”

A draftee was awakened by his platoon sergeant after the rookie’s first night in an army barracks.
