An Anthropological Study of Chickens: Like Chicken Like Man

Gallus gallus domesticus, friend in times good and bad
An animal which didn’t evolve well
From dinosaur to clucking egg producer, isn’t that sad?
Trapped inside its wire-based cell

A hen brood fight; pecking order again
Feathers flutter like a torn pillow
Much like life for many women and men
We cannot fly, but ideas can billow

When the world ends, I’ll live in a coop
Nothing can get in, except for the hungry fox
It will be quite small, I might have to stoop
I’ll be safer in there, except from chicken pox
