Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
We all know little greedy Duffy Duck
that character from Disney's cartoon
known to end up with bad money luck
in each and every single Looney Tune.
In one episode he was online writer
greedy as ever and hoping to get rich
his creative muse was some real fighter
but never good enough for that money itch.
Then writing turned into his addiction
now with new hopes to satisfy his greed
he made himself a silly hero in his own fiction
as praises, and more praises became his need.
Was it an excuse, or just some consolation
but rewards he got for writing turned funny
little bunch of friends was all of his creation
like Elmer Fudd, and of course, Bugs Bunny.
There they all were feeding each others' pride
in absence of rewards they secretly all wanted
something that greedy duck succeeded to hide
enjoying time with friends, not by greed haunted.
Being a sleepwalker he would come out at night
dreaming and yelling: "I am rich, I'm filthy rich!"
and you could still find him on that same site
happily socializing with no reason to bitch.
