Plucky Ducky

Standard

Sometimes duck eggs are set under a broody hen to hatch.
It’s claimed that ducklings attach themselves to the first large moving object they see when they fledge and regard it as their mother.  
I’ve never actually witnessed either phenomenon, but they gave me idea for this rather dippy verse.

Young Don was a strange kind of duck
Instead of a “quack” he said “cluck”
He’d been hatched by a hen
Which impressed him and when
He first tried to swim he got stuck.

But Don was a brave sort of duck
Not lacking in spunk or in pluck
But he hadn’t much sense
When he perched on the fence
He fell beak over tail in the muck.
