duck cover

He pulls 
the eiderdown 
Over his skinny 
little head 
Flashbacks in his mind 
Of a nasty video 

One which scared him 
Almost out 
of his little mind 
If only he could rewind 
Starting back 
at the beginning 

Once such images 
Entered his tiny brain 
So hard to delete 
Over and over 
Turning the head 
outside in 

Beak opens wide 
Dabbing with nerves 
Like catching flies 
twitching with exhaustion 
Images floating 
in the mind 

Nodding off 
Awakens to nightmare 
Dreaming of justice 
The culprit is covering 
the tracks 

Eventually sleep falls 
Taking him 
to duck heaven 
Were he has 
a duck banquet 
Famous ducks 
from all over 
the world 
Dreaming in royal dreams 

smiling asleep 
In the morning sun 
Enters his room 
streams of light 
Awakening jumps 
out of his skin 

Flash backs 
hoping the culprit 
is nailed 
To get his shot 
at court 
Were he will 
answer questions 
On morality 

No more 
Mr.. Nice duck 
Brings out 
deep within 
The bad and ugly side 
Of his soft makeup 

Second thoughts 
Just be himself 
Stand firm and be counted 
Like a legionnaire 
In the desert 

Caught in sandstorms 
When the sand settles 
This duck 
will brew 
the mother 
Of all storms 

Sweet roaring thunder 
he will strike 
see who cries 
over spilled 
milk then
