The Alarm Cock


The cock with the crimson comb,
Called out with great aplomb.
Cock-A-Doodle-Doo, he said,
"Wake-up you, sleepy head!"

Before I'd begun to rise
What a surprise!
He gave a big burp,
Saying "Ive gobbled them all up.

Cock-a-doodle-doo!
Not a worm left, poor you!
The early bird I am
And that's no sham."

This poem has been written for the 'Z-A in 26 Days Challenge' at I Rhyme Without Reason

Good food for the Cock-A-Doodle-Doo
If I was one, I'd like doing it too
Do visit my café
enjoy café au lait
Plenty there to doo!! ;)

Loved this witty rhyme!!! :D
And I'm burping, filled with enjoyment too!! ;)
