Barnyard cogitations.

I Behold the duck. It does not cluck. A cluck it lacks. It quacks. It is specially fond Of a puddle or pond. When it dines or sups. It bottoms ups.

II Let's think of eggs. They have no legs. Chickens come from eggs. But they have legs. The plot thickens: Eggs come from chickens, But have no legs under 'em What a conundrum!

III Little gamboling lamb, Do you know where you am? In a patch of mint. I'll give you a hint. Scram. Lamb!

IV There is nothing more perky Than a masculine turkey. When he struts he struts With no ifs or buts. When his face is apoplectic, His harem grows hectic And when he gobbles, Their universe wabbles.

V Cows are mothers of calves And are anxious on their behalves. They eat up grass and clover And when they finish, they eat it all over. And if they only ate clover and grass up, Butter and milk I would never pass up. A cow I would spend all my money on Is a cow that hated wild garlic or oney-on.

VI There is nothing in any religion Which compels us to love the pigeon.
