Ducks in a Row


By Walt Perryman

Here is something about living everyone should know,
Most of us spend our life trying to get our ducks in a row.

Ducks represent life situations both the good and the bad.
To be happy we think things must be perfect, that is sad.

We get them in a row and everything’s going fine,
But those stupid little ducks never stay in line.

So, we put our happiness on hold and that really sucks,
Life passes us by while we are lining up ducks.

We do not realize that life goes by so fast,
Until we get older and look at our past.

I am going to change my priorities and I will be just fine,
I am going to be happy even if my ducks are out of line.

So, Lord please help me and my ducks too.
So, we can try to stay in line with you.
