The Hen & the Housewife

Part 2 – Adolescent Chicken

And as the days went by
Father cock, he did try
But the chicks died one ... another
He just couldn’t play mother

And then was left one chick
It survived through thin and thick
Cat, clime, car and crow
Could not deal it death’s blow

It played among the dogs
And preyed upon the frogs
Ate meat instead of grain
It grew again and again

The housewife looked on keenly
And sharpened her knife routinely
She could not wait for Christmas
Chicken soup would be bliss


  1. "..preyed upon the frogs Ate meat instead of grain"? If i were the housewife i will be mightily suspicious instead of sharpening my knife. lol

  2. Me too, lol..what kind of chicken eats meat? Hmm..
