A Thought about Ducks

By Walt Perryman

When you think you have the world by the tail,
You’d better hang on, something is fixing to fail.

If you ever think you have your ducks in a row,
Think again, there’s something you don’t know.

But when you feel like your world is subsiding,
That’s when you cowboy-up and keep on riding.

Remember that cowboys like us seldom whine,
I whine because of one duck that’s never in line.

Have a good day and I wish you the best of luck,
And, try to not whine over ‘your’ out-of-line duck.
