Ducks and Geese

 

  

 Ducks and Geese

 

                                                Paddlings do paddlings dee

Little ducks and geese

Baking in warm afternoon sun

 

Step closer, quietly and still

Viewing the ducks and the geese

By the tree

 

Wobblings do wobblings dee

The ducks and the geese

On the same bank of the pond

 

The ducks wobbling by the geese

Cleaning their wings

Minding their own things

 

No fighting I see!

Geese and ducks

Inches away from each other

 

The big geese bodies

Bully no little ducks

 

Comfortable the ducks are

With other kinds

Sharing space

And food

 

Happy they are

Different species

Paddling together in the pond

 

Humans are the same species

 

But Christians fight with Christians,

Protestants fight with Catholics

In Northern Island

 

In Syria

Muslims fight with Muslims

Alawites with Sunnis

 

In Iraq

Shias fight with Sunnis

 

 Muslims fight with Christians

Jews fight with Muslims

Hindus fight with Muslims

Buddhists in Myanmar (Burma) fight with Muslims

 

Muslims fight with Buddhists

In southern Thailand

And other places

 

What is the matter with humans?

Unashamed, killing each other

Of the same kind

 

Ducks and geese in Branch Brook Park Pond

Coexist with each others

 

Paddlings do paddlings dee

Happy they are

 

Wobblings do wobblings dee

With their little tiny brains

Cleverer they are than humans

 

Humans are

Pity do, pity dumb

Weeping do and weeping dumb
