THE CHICKEN AND THE RAVEN
The chicken with the shrill voice
Danced with the crazy man from Hell;
They moved like a puppet toy
And the feelings emerged from their little shell.
“Who are you inside?” he inquired,
You make me feel utterly wired.”
Clapping its wings the chicken would reply,
“I cannot tell you as we are all trying to find ourselves. That’s why."
‘There’s a raven inside me trying to get out,” shrieked the madman.
“Until she does, I can’t love nowt.”
“Love is over-rated,” clucked the chicken, ‘but I will let you know
that what you’ll find in me is a very manly crow.”
