I knew it! Another first place!
'course, it looks centered to me - who couldn't find the picture in the picture.
Very good, and I remember the little rubber ducky, too.
When I lived in Crested Butte, they had a rubber ducky race. people bought a ducky, with a number on it. they were all thrown in the river at one end of town and everybody ran down to the other end - (in town) to see who won. T'wasnt moi, but it was fun.
Congrats again! well done!!!

    LOL!! They used to have one here (years ago) at one of the big outdoor shopping centers with 'man-made' stream that ran through it! ;) Brought the boys when they were little -- it was fun!! ;) Thanx again, my friend, for hanging out with me... I see your name above on the next one, too... Gosh, I wish we could have a coffee session, too! ;) LOL! ;) Yvette

Your poem deserves a six-star rating. Love your poem....it means so much to a duck; wow, they can still win a prize for a contest. A beautiful tribute for your yellow ducky!

    Oh, Rosemary, Thank you so much!! You know, I sponsored this contest thinking it would be a fun topic for the the cold month of January and then, when it came time to write something, all I could think of was the boys when they were little!! ;) :) So glad you enjoyed! ;) Yvette

This even and odd poem, Now That They're Gone, has the proper formatting and hits the nostalgia button as we all return to the bathtub experiences we had with our kids. Rubber ducky is champion of bath time. I'm still awfully fond of her.

I think this is a good Rubber Ducky Even The Odds writing prompt entry.
This fun verse tells of an old rubber ducky.
Well done and I wish you luck with the contest.

I have rubber duckies around my bathtub but had no idea they have a special day tomorrow! I enjoyed your reminiscing with the mother and son ducks as you maintained the form of this centered, Even the Odds poem. Big smiles and best wishes in the competition- Joan

Liked your take on this topic as you managed to enclose the story of a child growing out of his childhood. And of course, the way old toys lose their importance after a certain time period. Kind of like toy story! Good job:-)

A very well-written even the odds poem about the rubber ducks remembering the fun times they had with the children in the house while growing up. The good times are more than the bad times.

Awww, that's sweet and touching: it reminds me of a yellow duck my son had when he was little, over 30 years ago. They do indeed end up battered but still cheerful.
