The Old Cock Pheasant!

Share

cock pheasantI opened the curtains this morning and there strolling across the lawn was a cock pheasant. He didn’t seem at all flustered at seeing me, I suppose he knew that I was unlikely to be carrying a gun while wearing pyjamas! We passed the time of day until he just wandered off, bored with human contact…

An old cock pheasant,
Once said to me,
“Life’s quite easy,
Being twenty-three!”

“I’ve had many wives,
They come and they go,
The last on was `Penelope,
Lost her in the snow!”

“Now I just stroll,
I don’t really worry,
It’s not that I’m in,
A rush or a hurry!”

“I nearly had my chips,
Met a fox in the rough,
I just said to him,
‘You’ll find me rather tough!’

“I must be getting on,
Can’t stand and chat all day!”
And with those words,
The pheasant just strolled away!
