Durball the Duck and the wrong shampoo


You know some days


your down on you luck


thats the way it was


for Durball the Duck.


He had washed his feathers


in a new shampoo


trouble was


it had coloring too,


well being a Duck


you miss the small print


all his feathers


they came out Pink.


Now thats no color


for a manly bird,


so Durball felt quite absurd,


hid away


among some bushes


until he was spotted


by some Pidgeons.


Have your fun


Durball shouted


as the Pidgeons


flapped their wings


trying hard not to laugh.


It was then a passing flamingo


did spy


and had a twinkle in his eye,


poor Durball was having none of this


told the flamingo


to get lost.


It was during the night


there in his lake


he scrubbed his feathers


till his wings did ache,


then by the morning he was pleased


all the pink was gone


now he could feel at ease.
