HAVE YOU SEEN OUR CHICKENS?
The other night, we went to bed,
But not for very long.
We heard our chicken’s cackling
And knew something was wrong.
We jumped up from our nice warm sheets,
Ran out in the cold night air,
Saw a cat in the chicken pen,
But the chickens were not there.
We’d left the pen door open,
A foolish thing indeed…
Sometimes we simply just forget
What our little chickens need.
But, nonetheless, the harm was done
And our chickens flew away.
If you by chance should see them,
Please call us up today.
