Of LEGOs and Ducks (VH)


Vala Hafstað's picture

In Iceland, we’re having a heyday.

To celebrate, we had a playday.

In fact, we’ve been trying our luck

With LEGOs by building a duck.


And Denmark excelled at the meeting

While David endured quite a beating.

His duck did resemble a dog,

A cat, or a cow, or a hog.


I truly had fun at the session.

I’m sure I made quite an impression

By showing the world that a guy

Can play without wearing a tie.


Our lives should be fun, entertaining.

This job can be terribly draining.

Quite honestly, often it sucks.

I’d rather just play with my ducks.
