Strange happenings by the canal….much flapping and quacking was heard….what could possibly be going on??
The Right Reverend Duck was nervous…he flexed his wings in preparation….
He practised looking powerful and in command…..
He knew he wasn’t ready yet….
He turned a little to the left and drew himself up…..
He tested out his wing point, the one that he had been perfecting over the last few weeks, the one which would emphasize his sermon subtext to anyone unfortunate enough to not be listening!
And tried to find that space in his head which would finally ready him for the task ahead!
This was his moment….
“Ducks, Drakes and all Water Fowl which liveth on this canal…I have important words, words of life for you…..” quacked The Right Reverend Duck!
“Lift your wings to the Almighty Duck in the sky and forsake this early summertime behaviour of lust and polygamy. Do not give in to the temptations of a moment of pleasure……” he continued, “Remember the wife/husband of your youth…..”
But me oh my….just look at the reaction he got…..
There was an enormous amount of splashing and quacking and a loud voice shouting “Don’t you come down here a preachin’ and a hollerin’ about our behaviour…why we’re only doing what ducks have always done….and I for one ain’t gonna listen to your preachy nonsense Mr. The Right Reverend Duck!” squawked Delilah the Dirty (as she was known to her friends…her reputation always going ahead of her!)
Delilah turned with a flourish and splish sploshed away to get to yet another saucy assignation!
The Right Reverend Duck spun around a little, both in horror at this reaction and in hope that someone would stand with him against such sinful behaviour……
He looked heavenward and who should he see flying in to his rescue………???????
I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait until tomorrow to find out what happens next…I know I know, you can hardly hold yourselves together!
See Ya xx
