DUCK BOAT SATURDAY
“Make Way for Ducklings” came out in ‘forty-one,
About a Boston family who chose to get things done…
By raising their duck family in the Boston Garden pool
And became the official nursery book,
Which people thought so cool!
Boston went “duck crazy” with a statue of the same,
A life-sized bronze line of ducks
With international fame…
Ducks still breed in the Boston Garden “Lake” for sure,
Using Swan (paddle) Boats in summertime
The ducks are kept secure!
Surplus amphibious vehicles, “DUK” by name,
Someone started using in the touring game…
And for special occasions instead of a fancy float,
They crank up the whole big fleet…
A parade of Duck Boats!
The thing about Duck Boats, really,
Is they work on sea and land…
In and out of the Charles River I hope you understand,
Rolling down Main Street to cheering crowds…
Our heroes in demand!
Duck Boats come in colors,
Green and red and blue…
During the normal season
They use just a few,
But for the Red Sox…
They’ll pull out all the stops
To make a splash of a happy bash
Until old Boston rocks! 🙂
