Bad Luck Rubber Duck

A rubber ducky

was not so lucky

He got flushed out to sea

For many days

On the ocean waves

Would that rubber ducky be


He sailed through sun

He sailed through storm

To places cold and places warm

He carried on sailing

Without a sail

Until he got eaten by a whale


The duck was now stuck

Inside the whale's belly

Where everything was rotten and smelly


To escape would be tricky

But it's what he had to do

If he didn't want to be part of the whale's poo


Make the whale sneeze

With pepper and peas

Was the plan that he created

He got the bits

From swallowed ships

And out the blowhole he was evacuated


Up and up he could see daylight

On jet of water flying high

When he got caught by a bird passing by


The bird then dropped him

On a desert isle

The duck would be there a while

But soon the weather changed

And the tide it rose

Until it came up to ducky's nose


It's not so bad

The luck he had

As now the duck is free

Because he sails in the biggest bath of all

When the tide takes him out to sea.
