Cockle-Doodle-Don't

1 Review

Rooster strutted up high

Up to his risky roost

High atop the barn

He didn't need a boost

.

Took a deep, confident, breath

Cleared his Rooster throat

Stretched his red feathers

And sang a practice note

.

With the sun still asleep

Rooster had something to do

It was a Cockle-Doodle

A Cockle-Doodle-Doo

.

The animals woke swiftly

With a lot of work to do

Chickens laid their eggs

And Donkeys helped too

.

Horses pulled the ploughs

Tending to the fields

Cows gave milk

That's how a farm yields

.

Rooster brought his little son

Up high to his risky roost

He was quiet and shy

And needed a little boost

.

It was time to wake up the farm

There was a lot of work to do

It would start with a Cockle-Doodle

A Cockle-Doodle-Doo!

.

Little Rooster wandered off

Up to the barn's highest point

Sun appeared and Rooster blared

"Cockle-Doodle, Cockle-Doodle, Don't!"

.

Don't get too high

Don't go near that edge

Don't look down below

You will fall off that ledge

.

The animals heard Cockle-Doodle-Don't!

They slept in and began to snooze

No milk, no eggs, no work

The farmer even slept in too

.

The next day the Little Rooster promised to behave

"I promise I won't make trouble, honest I won't"

Then he jumped into the farmer's deep pond

Rooster blared, "Cockle-Doodle-Cockle-Doodle-Don't!"

.

Don't go in that pond

Don't you dare go in

Geese and Ducks can float

Roosters can not swim

.

The animals didn't work that day

So they slept until the sun began to fade

The farm would have to close

If milk wasn't milked or eggs weren't laid

.

Rooster came down with a sore throat

He couldn't sing Cockle-Doodle-Doo

Little Rooster would have to take his place

His courage and confidence grew

.

He perched to the top of the barn

The Chickens were asleep in their cages

Then came the loudest Cockle-Doodle-Doo

It was a wake up call for the ages!

.

The Cows were alarmed, the Horses were startled

The Pandas in China woke up too

Because of Little Rooster's confident loud roar

Of Cockle-Doodle, Cockle-Doodle-Doo

.

So if you can't wake up one morn

If one day you can't, or you won't

Sleep in for 10 more minutes

and remember Cockle-Doodle-Don't!

.

THE END....

.
