Elmer The Duck MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   Elmer the duck

swam around in the pond

as little toddlers tossed morsels of bread to him.



Quack quack.



Then the children grew up.

They returned to the pond

with orders from the head honcho

and something else to give to Elmer.

They would dump the barrels in,

green who-knows-what poured out.



Quack.



The next generation of naturalist kids

scamper round the pond

to stare at and take pictures

of all the dead animals.



(silence)
