Where is our bread?
You brought a camera instead?
How thoughtless is that!
Have you anything to say
in your own defense
before we quack you away?
I do have something to say.
You don’t need more bread.
Living in a pond
behind a nice restaurant,
the leftover food
must have affected your head.
So, I’ll take a stand…
I refuse to accept your
duck quack reprimand!
All of the birds here
are getting a little fat.
You’re not hungry, not starving,
so don’t be upset
because I’ve no bread
and be happy I’m holding
my camera instead. ~ms
