"Be Kind To Your Web-Footed Friends"

Be kind to your web-footed friends,
For a duck may be somebody's mother.
She lives all alone in the swamp,
In the cold and the damp.
Be kind to your web-footed friends,
For one duck may be nearly like another,
But to the duck that she loves,
She is the
one, she is the one and only mother.
