Go Kiss A Duck!

A dozen Government Veterinarians,

in a circle on their knees,

Listening through their stethoscopes,

In case one baby duck should sneeze!

They spent their winter on a wild goose chase,

Through swamps, ponds and parks it's true,

In search of booger dripping beaks,

And other signs of birdie flu.

They seek it here, they seek there,

They seek that Bird Flu everywhere,

There was none here, so they took the chance,

To import a batch, all the way from France!

...

This, looks like a job for,

The Scarlet Pumpernickel!
