The Ballad Of The Turkey

© G Yates

Published on February 2006

As I walked along the road one day
Kicking up stones along the way,
I saw a bird of unusual size
Who had a large beak and small, beady eyes.

He strutted about and ruffled his wings
Then he did the most ominous thing.
He let out a screech and puffed out his chest
I wanted to run from this evil pest.

As this bird's mighty exterior did appear
The inside of my chest was filled with fear.
He put one talon forward, the other one next
This troublesome bird was making me vexed.

I then did something that was a great chance.
I kicked a stone at him to stop his advance.
He then chased the stone, oh joy of great joys!
I felt myself one of the luckiest boys!

Around the corner I ran, straight to my home,
Leaving that bird confused and alone.
Don't befriend a turkey (for that's what he was)
Or he will attack you simply because.

We lived in a neighborhood in a busy part of town for many years, and one day we saw a couple turkeys walking around. Then later there were two more. Our neighbors finally got used to them, then started protecting them, afraid someone would have them for dinner someday. They roamed around for years, and it's true they don't make good pets. They are very territorial. They just want to eat and be left alone! Cute poem.
