An ode to Barnabus

It appears I have a neighour who keeps a duck for a pet.

Editor:

It appears I have a neighour who keeps a duck for a pet. I see this gigantic bird often as I pass by an apartment building very near to my home. It’s obvious that this duck is well fed.

I’ve written a poem inspired by the duck, hope that you’ll enjoy.

The Duck Quacks at Midnight by Wendy Welk

Barnabus the duck is a neighbour’s pet of mine

Barnabus the duck has a quack that’s oh so fine

Barnabus the duck gets his feathers in a flap

Barnabus the duck tried to sit upon my lap

Barnabus the duck likes to eat and eat and eat

Barnabus the duck loves to swim to beat the heat

Barnabus the duck sports a head of emerald green

Barnabus the duck has a waddle that’s obscene

Barnabus the duck seems to lead a simple life

Barnabus the duck hopes to one day get a wife

Wendy Welk, Aldergrove
