Duck Down Explosion

This morning,

There was a duck down explosion.

Caused by me,

I’m afraid to say.

Not by blowing up ducks,

As you might think.

For that would be cruel,

And so out of character.

(Although it is also all over the garden.

Which would be the ideal place

For blowing up ducks.

Albeit a small area)


Removing the covers from

Recently donated cushions,

Sent an uncatchable cloud

Whirling, indoors, throughout.

Quite a surprise.

I was shocked.

Taken aback and open mouthed

At my own stupidity.

Clutching at feathers

I Ran to the garden

Sending clouds everywhere.


Not having a hoover,

Waited for the clouds to settle

Then damp clothed them

Into clumps.


The thing about donations.

I think, is that,

You see what you’re getting

On the outside.


The inside,

Is often,

Far more,
