There is a pecking order and I know I am not on the top,

Somewhere near the middle and picked on is my spot.

Pete piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, so who in the world was he,

Turns out a real person, piper is English for pepper, sold peppers for a fee.

Woody Woodpecker was a fictional character, Walter Lantz,drew him

He made a cartoon of the bird doing weird things on a tree limb.

There was a famous Irish banjo player named Pecker Dunne,

He also played the guitar and mandolin well, his music fun.

If you like chicken come to Peckers in the Great State of Texas,

Order fired chicken or great cat fish and eat it without a fuss.

Speaking of food there is a D.D. Peckers Wing Shack in another southern state,

It is in the city of Charleston, South Carolina which features chicken and no wait.

Finally and not least is the Great Spotted Woodpecker which bangs on trees,

You will find it banging in Europe, with its red head pretty as you please.

Okay there is another meaning but I am a clean guy and will not mention it,

But if you have the mind for the concept look up Willie Nelson and his wit.
