What an arrogant pheasant
that cock is never pleasant
discounts all his faults
performs his cockerel waltz
chest puffed out, wing down
like he's the only man in town
but a surprise is coming for our pal
he'll soon be a capon (no not Al)
for we all must surely know
meat is much tender once the testes go.
**I was doing a little research on roosters to get some ideas. I learned something new. Some roosters are purposely castrated-they call them capons. This leads to making them more docile and causing them to become fat. And this in turn makes the meat juicier and more tender-less stringy.
