DISTRACTION

Once upon a time

In a village by the sea

There was a little boy

And that little boy was me.

Sent there by my mother

To catch a mess of fish.

For my father was too busy

And this was my mother’s wish.

Along the road to get there

I was distracted by a duck.

Curiosity caught hold of me

And then my mind was stuck.

As I stood there in my wonder

At this duck upon her nest

She quacked at me

“Get to the sea

I need to get my rest.”

This broke my fascination

And when I looked up at the sky

My heart began to pound

As the day had slipped right by.

I turned to make my way back home

“I have no fish!” I scowled.

The moral of this story…

Stay on task, and don’t get “fowled!”
