Crossing The Border 

Senescence begins
And middle age ends
The day your descendants
Outnumber your friends.

The Duck 

Behold the duck
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond.
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups. 

— Ogden Nash

The Pelican
By Ogden Nash

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican.

He can take in his beak

Food enough for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican.
