Frenzied Chocolate Chickens

the frenzied chocolate chickens
have all at last calmed down
as now their Easter eggs are safe
since the rabbit has left town

peace has at last descended
now they’ve stopped their raucous clucking
and their feathers are much sleeker
since they stopped their nervous plucking

the eggs are now returning
from whence they had been hid
and the chickens think they’re safe now
but I’ve got a pot and lid

I fancy boiled eggs
not those soft chocolate kind
just plain and simple hard boiled
that is what is on my mind

so Easter may be over
but the danger to their eggs
is ever present all the time
if they only used their heads.

  1. Moral of the story: All of us are only one cluck away from a startling baptism in a bucket of boiling water. Oh wait, I might be confusing this with my now-defunct career in the world of telecommunications. In any case, I like mine over easy, gooey and messy, just like life. With a side of biscuits and sausage gravy because, well, everything is better with sausage gravy…

    1. Yes 🙂 Must be that the size of their heads just doesn’t allow for much thinking.

  4. I’m glad I’m not a chicken. I’d rather be a bunny at this time of year.
