Rooster's Duty

Morning's light
Rooster crows.
Front yard spread,
Needs mowing, he says,
Tapping on the window pane.
Maiden goose honks echoed
By twin goose loud
Yet persistent, resistant
To Shouts:
'Shut up, ' again.
Rooster crows jubilant
Preen and cry loud
Crow Rooster crow!
Keep awake.
Duty calls.
