The Crossroads of My Duck

Welcome Dear Readers!  What do 4,966,661 WordPress bloggers have in common?

Everyday bloggers just like you and me — except that they all have different names and different faces and probably aren’t the same height — are participating in a little thing called the WordPress Daily Prompt.   Here’s today’s prompt:

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CROSSROADS.

The Crossroads of My Duck

The Crossroads of my duck Linda Vernon humor


I loved you, Duck, through pain and strife

Twas really hard to leave you

At the crossroads of your life

(I didn’t mean to peeve you)

You were my confidant, dear

For no one else I turned to

I seared you in that pan (for luck!)

I didn’t mean to burn you


The pros and cons of eating you

Were too numerous to list

l’orange?  With honey?  In a stew?

(I’m sure you get the gist)


Oh little duck, my feathery friend

You have no counterpart

But truth is friend (I can’t pretend)

My stomach won my heart

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Linda – like so many blogs today WordPress is asking me to do a pointless ‘reload’ so I’m taking it that I will ‘like’ your post because I always do! I will try and gain access to the post tomorrow!

  2. I love this poem! The poor duck would never stand a chance against your stomach especially if he had a big, juicy liver.

  3. I didn’t recognise you in salmon pink, green and beige. It’s the same colours as the poached salmon and asparagus from one of your thrift shop 70’s cookbook finds

  4. Every time I make duck, I walk around with a blissful expression for a few days.
    That’s why I befriended the whole flock – so I don;t run out!

    By the way, I’m pretty sure that out of all those 4,000,000+, you’re the only one who wrote about eating their best friend.
    Well done!

    (And the new theme looks good!)

    • LOL!! And as far as eating best friends goes I think the only people who wrote about it were me and that guy who ate Michael Rockefeller –but I don’t even think they were all that good of friends, so maybe it was just me.

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
