Celebrating Rubber Duckies the Irish Way

Birthday Blitz

by Minglement

Salute!
Seven drunken
Irish rubber duckies
celebrate with wild abandon.
Skinny dip in yellow-plume birthday suits.
"No ociffer", burped in garbled quacks.
"Nay drunk, Baith and Fegorrah!
We're lust a jittle
birthday bashed."
Cheers!


Rubber Ducky Even The Odds writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write an Even the Odds Poem pertaining to RUBBER DUCKIES. That's right folks, the 'favorite fowl' bath toy whose 140th birthday is this year has its very own day. That day is January 13th. Therefore, to honor such a prestigious celebration, you are to write an Even the Odds poem that somehow, someway incorporates the traditionally yellow fellow as the focus. And if you don't believe me that there really is such a day, check out this link:

Now, without further ado, go draw yourself a hot bubble bath and get out that rubber ducky to inspire! Then grab your pen and impress us, make us laugh, make us cry, but just get us to vote for your rubber ducky rendition! :)

As a reminder, the 'Even-the-Odds' poetry format has a syllable count of 2-4-6-8-10-9-7-5-3-1 [starts out with evens and finishes with odds]
The first line (two syllables) and the last line (one syllable) are essentially synonyms
There is no rhyme requirement, although it isn't discouraged.
An example is included below of this announcement although REMEMBER TO CENTER your text [very loosely resembling a diamond-shape. Note the 'loosely' here... perfection is not required!]

Evening Performance
By Y. M. Roger

................................Fairies
......................Flit through the air
....................Chromatic symphony
............Of effulgent streaks and glitter
Performing 'neath where the trees meet the stars
........Tonight, the crickets and frogs join in
...............Enhancing the vibrant show
......................You?ll never forget
..........................Dancing with
..............................Sprites!

(I tried to center it...editor is VERY primitive - LOL! But you get the idea!)
