....And then she hit me up for a donation which I gave
And you can too
And if you do as well,
I think you are hella super swell.
Give your conscience that new-car smell. that's their URL.
And thus we conclude our telling with a happy ending
After one tough test of a duck's mettle
And when the dust settled, I considered “Duck delivered,”
And how it means something on more than one level
In the most literal sense, Ben meant
That his wife had brought Brutus to Ulla at the refuge
But, as in “deliver us from evil,”
It can also mean “saved” or “set freed” or “rescued.”
And Brutus was delivered in this way too,
From the version of the story where he didn't make it
And they butchered him and sliced out his internal organs:
A fowl, disemboweled and eviscerated.
I was touched to see Ben write “delivered”
But things just as easily might have differed.
If they'd cut and cleaved and knifed his innards,
It'd be “Duck de-hyphen-livered.”


from Brutus, released September 6, 2016
