Pheasant in the Road

There’s a pheasant in the road
And he’s taking his sweet time
Holding up the traffic
As he walks the dotted line
He has no care for hurrying
No chores to fill his day
And so he walks with measured pace
As he has right of way
Some drivers wait with patience
Some drivers swear and hoot
And a farmer in a Land Rover
Looks quite prepared to shoot
But still the pheasant walks the line
And still he makes us wait
Until he thinks it might be fun
To dive beneath a gate
The traffic speeds up, thankful to be
Back in travel mode
But right around the corner
There’s a pheasant in the road
