Chickens: Ode To Malcolm

“Chickens: Ode To Malcolm”

We look outside now 

and it’s nothing but chickens 

roosting everywhere. 

For so long, we didn’t care 

where on earth these chickens were 

but since we feed them 

can we expect more than this?

Chickens returning 

to roost on the farm 

anywhere they please. 

We act shocked when we find eggs, 

but we keep on feeding them,

of course they’ll come home to roost,

of course there’ll be eggs.

When you feed chickens 

don’t act so surprised 

when they do what chickens do,

when they come back home to roost,

of course they came home.

Did they ever really leave?
