Ode to My Chickens

    Ode to My Four Pretty Hens

    They bawk bagawk bawk in the morning so early
    With three out of four rosy combs red and curly
    And one pea combed pretty who struts with the others
    All of them hens, but none of them mothers
    None of them mothers nor will they be
    We live in the city, no room for a "he"
    No beautiful rooster or cockerel proud
    Not in the city, a rooster's too loud
    But the girls seem happy to scratch and to sing
    Some lay me an egg – now that's the best thing
    They run in the daytime and scratch up the dirt
    On the lookout for treats, they're always alert
    They sleep every night in their cozy red house
    Protected from predator, vermin and mouse
    I'm new to the wonders of keeping the hen
    But I cannot remember how I lived without them.
