a suitable case for treatment

There once was an ugly duckling
With feathers all stubby and brown
And the other birds said in so many words
Get out of town
Get out, get out, get out of town
And he went with a sneeze and a cough and a sneeze
In a flurry of tissues
That poor little ugly duckling
Went wandering far and near
But at every place they said (while avoiding) his face
Now get out, get out, get out of here
And he went with a sneeze and a cough and a sneeze
And a very unhappy tear
All through the wintertime he hid himself away
Ashamed to show his face, afraid of what others might say
All through the winter in his lonely clump of wheat
Till a flock of swans spied him there and very soon agreed
You’re a very fine swan indeed!
A swan? Me a swan? Ah, go on!
And he said yes, you’re a swan
Take a look at yourself in the lake and you’ll see
And he looked, and he saw, and he said
I am a swan! Wheeeeeeee!
Bang! Went the shotgun of the man from DEFRA
