A duck named Fred

by Timothy Burns

There once was a white duck named Fred

Who loved eating big loaves of bread

He ate the bread stale

with a nice pint of ale

While setting on top of my head.

if the duck's name is Fred, what's the turtle's name?

The enjoyment in the experience that inspired this poem as well as in the process of making it is very palpable, lol xx

You gave me a great chuckle with this limerick. I love it. Straight into my favorites. Nothing like a cheeky limerick to pick up the spirits. Me hopes fred didn't shed any digested bread on ya head before he fled...

OK, I'm a limerick fan and this one delivers in a lot of the classic ways and with a fine pint of humor. Thanks!
