Daft Bird














Mr Pheasant you're a beauty, of that there is no doubt,
just such a shame when you were made they left the brain bit out.

I see you on the road ahead and know it's time to pray
you'll run for safety to the verge, not turn the other way...

But there you go, you daft old bird, charging for my car,
You dice with death, I hold my breath and think how dim you are.

Phew, it's okay! You get away, though it was a little tight,
Things would be so different if you knew your left from right.


Linking up with Victoria's Prose for Thought

    1. aren't they? Certainly compared to their Mrs, who seems to have missed out on brains and beauty!

  4. Lovely funny poem Tracey! I always used to love a bit of Spike Milligan - there should be more funny thoughts in poetic form on the little quirky things that come into our heads I think, definitely! #P4T

  6. I love pheasants! We have a 'pet' one (called Phil) who lives in our garden - I'm a bit obsessed with him! This really made me smile - I might print it out and put it on the fridge! ;) xx #P4T

  8. We don't have pheasants here in Australia (I don't think) but we do have equally silly birds who run the wrong way across the road! Cute photo!

  9. Brilliant poem you clever thing! Pheasants do make me laugh. We had one in our garden for ages, he would perch in a pine tree squawking if the children were too rowdy in the garden! :D
