I almost missed the bus today
There were some ducks that needed saving
I was locking my door, on my way
and six or seven birds waddled up to me
I sighed. they looked hungry.
I unlocked my door and shut it behind me
I rifled the cabinets for old bread,
I tore it up and threw it at them
they seemed happier with a little
split top wheat bread doing down their gullets
I felt happier for them.
I caught the bus just in time.
