Here is the accompanying verse by Brian Sibley:

‘A Knob of Pochards’

The Pochard duck is a fine-feathered snob

And a flock of these birds is known as knob.

They added the ‘k’ at the front of the word

For reasons that most would consider absurd:

Since ‘nob’ is a slang word for folks who are posh

Used by those who think social position is tosh.

But maintaining pretence is, frankly, too hard

For its real name is, simply, the Common Pochard.
