The Henhouse

The Henhouse

The bickering has begun
among the disturbed
chickens in the henhouse.

A rooster flew in
from New York
and crowed unexpectedly.

The chickens are scared.
They fear for their eggs
and entitlements.

He’s just too cocky
with his combover crown
and rebellious nature.

The hens cackle
and berate him, they squawk
and bawk* their wrath.

The rooster laughs
and struts even prouder
he’s got their feathers up.                                                                                                                                         .

*bawk- the sound a chicken makes.

  1. A lovely wording I was not aware of.Thank you.

  2. Witty . . .

  3. You don’t get meat or eggs from roosters. All they do is make a lot of noise and screw all the other birds in the barnyard.
