His chicken vanished from the face of Earth
unhappy and distressed connected so
with sites of poetry where lost pets' dearth
transformed to versicle expression's flow.

Logorrhea of namby pamby lines
and balderdash of verbose gardyloo
bombarded him with rounds of porcupines
stampeded unctuous like rabid gnoo.

But on the other hand he met some birds
composers of refined and sightly verse,
with glinting souls and clever words,
their intellect's expressions wise and terse.

And when he searched of who to value most
received his chicken's metrical riposte.

Really great work! I enjoyed it!...Thank you so much for the kind and encouraging comments. I really appreciate them, and I know that Isaiah will, too! :)

    I take back what I said below about stanza two... it all depends on pronunciation (and/or being able to count to ten properly.) Anyway, delightful poem and thanks for supporting my contest. ~N

    Lots of cute personification in this humorous one. Congrats for your win.

    Ok, I love this because your making up of words cracked me up. That excused lines one and four of stanza two for their syllabic miscounts. And also line three of stanza three. Thanks for the laugh! Namaste ~ N
