Today I wish that I was a duck.
For ducks, you see, have all the luck.
They spend their days in swimming ponds,
Splashing and laughing among the fronds.

See how they dance on puffy white clouds!
Hear how they honk above all the crowds!
If I was a duck I'd have no regrets
As I dive bomb the children and unwary pets.

I'd leave behind all my nine-to-five labors,
And spend all my days visiting neighbors;
For I would have access to a gold-filled truck
From my billionaire uncle, Mr. Scrooge McDuck.

Well, I suppose that a duck is an improvement over a kleenex... :-PPP
