Magpie Tales 87 / Poem: Lynching

There has been a lynching-

Mass retribution
for what I cannot say.
Was it the down in the pillows?
Not enough fluff?

Whatever the cause
these ducks hang in public
perhaps to make an example
though I doubt their kind
dip to do flybys
of the market district.

Someone will
take them home for dinner
celebrate their demise
with duck soup.

Michael A. Wells
