When Your Dream Job Is *This Close*

If I were a sniper

And also a duck

I’d rely on my training

And also my pluck

To take out a target

In one master stroke.

I’d let out a quack

When I see the guy croak.

Being a duck sniper

Some might call “fowl.”

But I could wear camo makeup

And maybe a cowl.

But alas I was born

With a bad lot of luck;

I could still be a sniper

But never a duck…

  1. In light of your truths,
    While they’re hard to reduce,
    If you took the right track
    You could then be a quack
    And a quack with a gun…
    Doesn’t that sound like fun?
    And that’s almost the same
    In the duck sniping game…
