Mother Duck

As part of the #twistednurseryrhyme challenge from “Pandora’s Box of Horrors” and “We PAW Bloggers” groups on Facebook, where a nursery rhyme is reworked to a morbid plot…

Your #twistednurseryrhyme for today…

Ducks on the River Corrib at Menlo
Ducks on the River Corrib at Menlo

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only four little ducks came back.

Where is my ducking
She did say
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
Quack quack quack
I’ll be gone to find him, but will be back

Mother duck, mother duck
Went one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck in horror
She did quack
The fox got her duckling
To the others she must get back

Mother duck mother duck
Raced back that day
Back over the hill from far away
In heartbroken horror she did quack
The fox got her other duckings
Before she got back!
