Meet Terry Turtle, a fine young fella
He’s looking for some friends
It’s not long before some turn up
And round and round they wend……
But Terry has his eye upon one lass in particular
He likes her shell and fine back feet
And wants her perpendicular!
What happens next I won’t describe
It might be impolite
But what Genevieve the Guinea fowl sees…..
It gives her quite a fright…..
“Oh my goodness gracious me
You simply won’t believe it
Avert your eyes birds fair and fowl
You just could not conceive it!!”
Peter Peacock heard her squawks and turned his head to the right
And what he saw down in the pool was really quite a sight!
Peter shouted over to his mate who was sitting on a pole
Paul took advice and turned away
To ponder population control!
Another peacock with an eye for some fun
Ran over towards the pond
But what he saw made him flee to his perch
With buried head he would not respond!
And all the birds both fair and fowl
They took on Gen’s advice
They cast their eyes down to the floor
And thought of all things nice!
(Did you ever see this view of a peacock?)
Warren Woodchuck Woodchuck Duck (Had to say that twice for the rhyme)
Said he’d brave the water
But when he got there he surely saw
Some things he should’na oughter
Oh Terry Turtle you saucy beast
You’ve had your wicked way
And now you’re hitching a ride back home
I don’t know what to say!
See Ya xx
Quick update…I have just realised (told by my dearly beloved) that Terry is a terrapin!!!
