Imagine Talking To A Duck

He was sitting in his boat beside the boat ramp,
his black lab on the seat beside him
watching a father, holding the hand of his tiny daughter,
walk down the ramp with bags of bread crumbs to feed the ducks.

“Quack, quack, hello you old duck,” the young father called repeatedly
scattering crumbs around
trying to lure the ducks closer to his daughter.

The man in the boat turned to his dog and said,
“Can you imagine anyone talking to a duck?”
