Some people prefer duck
For Thanksgiving or Christmas
I think I'd prefer the duck
Swimming around

I find duck greasy and unappetizing
Maybe because of my hellish experience
Eating it in a fancy restaurant
Having duck delivered first with
Head neck and all
When all it did was ignite
Acid reflux for a week
Or was it two?
Repeating the taste
Forever more
If only in my memory.

  1. Enough to make anyone a vegetarian. I see no reason ever to do this but only proves that humanity is quite bestial at times which gives beasts a bad name!

  2. Yuck. I tried duck once. Nevermore.

  3. Yes - ducks definitely belong on ponds not dinner plates
