We Still Don't Know Why

No one yet knows why the hen crossed the road. What could possibly have planted that notion? But I saw it happen, and even three-toed, It was poultry in motion -- poultry in motion! Snap snap snap snap snap snap snap . . . . . . . Poem of the Day August 5, 2017

:D that's really funny. I have the goat crossing the road on "cross here" and in the town. Cultured, isn't it. Enjoyed this! Congrats on POTD. :) Regs Sunita

That is indeed cultured. It wouldn't surprise me to see something like that in my area. Thanks for the fun comments Dean Reply

I'm not cultured. Would anyone please explain the wit about "there-toed" "poultry..." and "snap..."? (I feel left out of the fun)

Hannah, this simply a pun taken from the old saying "poetry in motion". It was written purposely in a 60's bohemian or hippie style. At poetry readings, the audience showed its appreciation by snapping their fingers rather than with applause. It was the more "Hip" thing and showed that you "felt it" rather than just watching. May be a little old school.
