Cock-a-Doodle Do!

‘Tis the day after Christmas
We are out of the house
We hear some birds calling
In the distance, some plows

With daybreak upon us
And the sun on the rise
We awoke from our slumber
Hearing curious cries

When what to our wondering minds
And rapt ear?
But the cock and doodle do
Of a rooster, quite clear

We peered out the windows
We listened quite well
There it was again
Like the peal of a bell

We ran to the hen house
To determine the noise
And what should emerge
But that Murphy’s a boy!

Yes, this sweet little chick
Six months in our history
The gender of which
Is no longer a mystery!

Now that we know the truth of the matter
We note a determined strut and a swagger
And so, you are welcomed with utter delight
To the boys’ club, dear Murphy,
You’re all male and all right!
