Thursday photo prompt – Swan #writephoto – Marg Swan


Marg Swan was very dim

Considering her name

What an irony she couldn’t swim.


Marg Swan ate chocolate chips

She grew to be quite round

Sat a table on her hips.


Marge Swan hated the sea

All that water just wasn’t right

Paddled only to her knee.


Marg Swan married Randy Duck

A marriage made in heaven

They loved to ride in a truck.


Marg produced many little Ducks

Randy the proud father, chest puffed out

His virility well and truly stuck.


Marg Swan grew old and died

Buried her on the side of the hill

Family gathered and wondering, cried.

    Very different from what I expected, Michael. The swan seems to have struck a lighter note with many writers this week 🙂
