Freak of Nature (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

Shunned by the mass,
an ugly duck quacked,
a freak of nature at that,
incomprehensibly quacked.

Quack, quack, quack!

The mother duck would quack,
encouraging the other ducks en masse,
to scold the ugly duck, quack, quack,
how useless the ugly duck at that.

Quack, quack, quack!

Poor ugly duck quacked in silent,
hoping the other quacks would die down,
unabated quacks would siren,
scolding the ugly duck as a clown.

Quack, quack, quack!

Came an old man Darwin,
taking a pity on the ugly duck,
using his Darwinism for the win,
confessing that he is in luck.

Quack, quack, quack!

The mother duck would quack,
Darwin would adore the ugly duck,
the other youngins would quack,
Darwin professed the freak is his luck.

Quack, quack, quack!

Angrily, other ducks got rowdy,
the mother duck demanded an explanation,
Darwin professed he is lucky,
to see a freak of nature in action.

Quack, quack, quack!

The mother duck would agree,
agreeing that the ugly duck is a freak,
Darwin would disagree,
saying that a freak isn’t so a freak.

Quack, quack, quack!

Other ducks would quack,
old man, you are so crazy,
freak is a freak, quack, quack,
otherwise this doesn’t explain nicely.

Quack, quack, quack!

Darwin laughed and replied,
it’s beautiful to see nature in action,
creating something different once in a while,
freak of nature is an evolution.

Quack, quack, quack!

Yes, it’s also a revolution,
rebelling the old, boring, outdated nature,
nature often starts a new experimentation,
potentially, creating a freak for a new measure.

Quack, quack, quack!

So quack away while you can still quack,
as the freak hasn’t yet realized he’s beautiful,
once he does you would fear his quack,
for his quack will be most wonderful.

Quack, quack, quack!

In their boring ways the ducks went on quacking,
believing the old man is a freak of nature,
thus they would go on quacking,
how the ugly duck is a freak of nature.

Quack, quack, quack!

Darwin failed to enlighten the lame ducks,
in sadness he humbled away,
years later, disease killed many lame ducks,
while the ugly duck flourished away.

Quack, quack, quack!

Ugly duck with wife seeded newborn freaks,
proving Darwin is right, they went on thriving,
ugly freaks became the new measuring stick,
long gone the lame ducks once were quacking.
