lame ducks can still be heard squawking

Standard
grateful for the slice

join us in slicing about life

some really believe

that if

Barack doesn’t get it done

soon,

it won’t get done.

they say that he is a

Lame Duck and that

after only one year in this second term

his power to

change will be crippled.

I am a poor, old

Lame Duck too….

some look at me and ask

me tenderly about my

plans,

but I know they are thinking

and thinking that

this Lame Duck

will

float down the

Sunset River…soon

not realizing that Lame Ducks

still can squawk

Loudly, Ferociously, Indignantly

when they know

danger is lurking

around the river bend,

her chicks will follow and still

there is this imprint

and after all, some lame ducks have been even known to stick around for a season or so.

  1. You, my friend, are NOT a lame duck! You are an inspiring, motivating, and loving educator. Keep doing what you’ve been doing because you continue to make a difference in all the lives you touch. Love you, Nanc!
