Mum and Dad teaching the twins.
Keeping clean, that’s how it begins.
Check the plumage, check each feather.
Taking pride, whatever the weather.
Inspecting the plumage
Sorting with a rummage.
Dad and mum teaching each flapper,
Making sure they always look dapper.
No ugly duckling, no cygnet that’s grubby.
All keeping smart, chicks, pen and her hubby.
