The Turkey Roundup|
I jumped my pony out of the stock truck,
Another day on the range was done…
Until I spotted Tracy’s border collie pup,
Out having a little fun.
They have a dozen free-range turkeys
That are just about half growed
That pup had gathered up the flock,
And was trying to haze them to the road.
Now I am hired to tend their cattle,
I aint no turkey Chickaroo,
But a disaster was plumb imminent!
So what else could I do?
Must have been a half a dozen cars,
Pulled off the road to stare.
And I suppose I looked a little silly,
Herding poultry on a sorrel mare,
Good thing my horse has a sense of humour,
She handled the job just fine,
To tell the truth we penned them gobblers,
In what might be record time.
