My Chicken Adventure

My Chicken Adventure Authored by Chuck Keys I found a chicken at my door barely moving on the floor kind of bony in and out dirty stinky not proud nor stout what brought him to my door today with nothing in hand nor able to lay I asked "where came you" replied he "a land away true" I asked "friend or foe this fine day" replied he, "I am here to dine n' stay" another mouth to feed and care for maybe I need to show him the door thinking of dinner for myself, " hmm" said I "should I eat the chicken with potatoes and peas?" so happy and gleeful he smiled so free Thinking maybe wouldn't be eaten by me Hungry as I was, riled at my noisy uninvited guest i looked at him, thinking, maybe he should be my quest. Fried, baked, barbecued or soup? He was destined to my food group. I ate him.
