A Naked Bird

The feathers aid any bird’s flight. The owl at night. The hawk in day. They fly away. With feathers, they can reach great heights in awesome flights. Up in the air without much care. What good would be a naked bird? Something absurd. Defective genes may cause these scenes. Robert Pettit For Nette’s “Just a Minute!” contest. October 9, 2012

    Funny write, Robert :) This poem may inspire some scientist somewhere to alter the genes of chickens so they wouldn't need to be plucked anymore GAH! Congratulation, Smiles from CYndi
