Black-bellied Whistling Tree Ducks

By John I. Blair

With a name like that
This act has to be special,
Has to stand out in the crowd
Of performers by the bay,
Has to be this
Dolled-up dozen
Looking like they were
Dressed by a
Fashion designer.
No one would ever
Mistake them for mallards.
No one would ever
Pass them over
Looking for something better to watch.
But, though the costumes are really good,
You have to wonder if they'll ever
Get a new routine?

2002 John I. Blair
