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.
