Conundrum

Could you unscramble the code before breakfast ?

On the off chance you could do it in the time allotted

Nine letters stand tween you and a golden prize

Until then the safe remains locked, its contents sealed

Noted wordsmiths tried and failed,

Decoding the puzzle might take longer than they took

Rotating the dials to produce the codeword

Untold fortunes await….whilst a

Moment of concentration is called for

Afloat

After Salford University’s hugging students: More weird world records broken by Brits

Salford 6th January 2017

In response to the daily post prompt Float

A tale of a Rubber Duck Race down the River Irwell in Salford, Lancashire.

There was pandemonium

at the rubber duck factory

as ten thousand streetwise ducks

waddled out of the city

They moved down the irwell

passing the boats

avoiding the locks

and staying afloat

Cows in the cowshed , watched somewhat bemused

and captains of small boats looked somewhat confused

as geese and their brethren all went amuck

following the trail of a little yellow duck

Led by their leaders, of United Red and City blue

passing under bridges and past an audience too

divided in a moment, by a Liverpool ferry

but meeting in middle – and still keeping merry

In the end after journey , down canal they all flocked

meeting at gateway at Mode Wheel Lock

and first one in net, out of water they rised

and their owner received, a very special prize.
