Get it Together!

Ducks In A Row

ducks

Get your ducks in a row, the boss yelled

You best get your stuff in one sack

Get your act together, he screamed

Or tomorrow we won’t need you back

 

Well, I had no idea what he meant

So I started to pace and fret

I don’t own any ducks, I thought

My predicament caused me to sweat

 

Noon came around and away I flew

Drove fast to the nearest mall

Purchased a book of duck tricks

And a quite expensive duck call

 

Raced out of town to the lake

Used the duck call that cost twenty bucks

Was worth it, for out of the reeds

Came a waddling, six little ducks

 

I’m quacking up, I thought to myself

For there wasn’t another soul there

I got out the book of duck tricks

And a duck act I began to prepare

 

I tried everything in the trick book

But them ducks seemed none too bright

Then the answer came suddenly to me

Above my head shone a bulb of light

The monkey was near off my back

Told the boss, they’re not in a row, but

Would you settle for five ducks in a sack

Get Your Ducks In A Row!

Here’s another poem I’ve posted before, some of you might have seen it, but I know most of you probably missed it. It’s one of those silly things that just popped into my head when I heard the title one day. We’ve all been there, and done this, in one way or another. I hope you get a chuckle out of it. It was a natural for the Poetry Potluck this week. Read the rest of this entry »
