In light of Napoleon's increasing distance from the rest of the animals, the poem composed in his honor by the official poet Minimus is fraught with irony. Napoleon is described as the "Ducklings' Friend," the "Friend of the Fatherless" who watches over all. Napoleon's actual isolation from the animals makes these praises ironically empty at best.
