ask a chicken

Want to understand Death?
ask a chicken that awaits its turn
in a cage, to be beheaded 

While it waits in cage 
hand of death enters many a times
each time picking up one for a kill 

Death, moment by moment
it witnesses and feels 
Knife, Chopping block always in eye sight 

Want to understand Death?
see a chicken while being cut
in a moment, life chopped into recipe pieces
