Never Mess With a Chicken Ranch

The barnyard was a twitter.
“She is walking pigeon-toed!”
“You should see it.”
“She thinks she is all that!”

I am dragged out to see.
After listening to them cackle like only hens can do.
There are sixty-six hundred chickens out here
Clucking around.

They are all walking around pigeon-toed.
Haughty with their snobby beaks in the air.
I catch the rooster’s eye.
“They all have fat butts too!” I say.

Expecting him to beak-laugh with me.
He gives them my message in beak-talk.
They surround me quickly
Pecking me to death

As per
instructions
and as per
chickens’ way

I decide never to
do that again.
As I fall into their
smelly chicken scratches.

I know people are starting to be terrified of my meanness, Kurt. Thank you for standing by. Bring your axes any day and we shall throw them together.
