Up and down it goes
And sometimes around the world
Before its time is done
It gets spun, rotated, and twirled

Sometimes it tries to run away
By trying to hop a fence
Then it runs around a corner
A breakaway that makes no sense

It’s been used to shoot the moon
Or go for a forward pass
It’s been used to walk the dog
And thrown down with class

It has skinned a cat before
Found as a three-leaf clover
Rocked a baby many a time
As a trick, it is no sleeper

Its name, it’s called Duncan
What it is, you probably know
Something many children have
A favorite toy called a yo-yo
