The Duck of Waddlesworth

There was a duck in Waddlesworth
Who wore a silver hat.
And on the crown he wore a pin-
A diamond studded cat.

It's said pride comes before a fall
And he was vain, you see.
Because his beak was in the air,
One day he stepped in pee.

Now the day was just beginning.
The duck had many plans.
He'd scheduled for a manicure
Though it requires hands.

He shook off the offending wet
And strolled into the shop,
But he was chased off with a broom
Then bumped into a cop.

"Excuse me, Mr. Officer!
Pardon me!" he said.
Then he ruffled up his feathers,
And went to lunch instead.

    The title sets the mood for a whimsical duck story. A lot of fun.
