There is almost nothing conceivable, that could be any horrider
Than an invasion of Killer Ducks in the great state of Florida.
They'd all been girding for attacks by dastardly Brazilian bees,
Hence developed no defenses for attacks by ducks. Holy Geez!
They should have been warned by officials, who will probably duck
All responsibility therefore and who will now hope for some luck
In resolving the problem; hope they'll slip through a crack,
But what have they forgotten? This will be a tough nut to quack.
There are so many issues upon which a politician must stake
A career ever upward rising. Who would ever believe that a drake
Might cause a problem such as this, for its essence is quite real.
It's a problem that can't be ducked, especially when it's a teal.
Politically, there is always the hope that legislation will fill
A need to resolve a societal concern and this might fit the bill.
If they can state the web of words that will take off them the heat
And not be attacked by the opposition; i.e., that of the webbed feet.
Birds of a feather flock together and all the resident birds
Of the Florida legislature have to formulate the requisite words
To expunge this flighty menace or this invasion will never cease.
What will likely be next? An invasion by a gaggle of geese?
Legislative delays can't be tolerated. They cannot pass the buck.
They have to grab the bull by the horns and pass a Bill of Duck.
A solution must be swift. Folks are tired of a system that chugs.
The real menace to our society now appears to be ducks, not drugs.
