#poem #poetry #amwriting sketchbood ducks and drakes

this one's too round
and this one's to heavy
and this one's to angular
to bounce on the waves

charlotte with her apple cheeks
   her sandy golden hair
   - slim as a boy - lithe as a whip -
drinks her pint stonelock style
   to the cheers of the lads
takes the applause in her stride
with a gesture of her hand

this one's too light
and this one's too big
and this one's bulbous
to bounce on the waves
