The Tempesta

Note: Originally posted on Facebook on June 10

It was a bright and sunny day like no other
When I saw the little boy at the lake, with his mother
Together, they were feeding bread to ducks and geese
Who were fighting amongst themselves for each and every piece

Suddenly a mother duck arrived with her two little ones
Tiny balls of feather they were, and cute as buttons
She wanted to get some bread for her kids of course
But the other ducks were greedy, and tried to stop her by force

But by God, that was their first and last mistake
For the fury of the mother duck destroyed the calm of the lake
And in the passing cruise ship, in the middle of all the fun and fiesta
An announcement was made in Italian – Take cover, we are in the middle of a tempesta!
