coo coo coo

chicken laugh it can’t feather ballgag in its beak
chicken run it can’t petrol needles in achilles ankle needles burst achilles sack
whose hands are so soft that coil intestine twist neck run stupid on hen peck hen peck hen peck
whose hands are so harsh they don’t spend no tear no tore nail no callus on poor chicken papa
no beck no call
no beck no call
hen peck raw coal chicken cough larynx
on the soft forgiving soil
then as always
pearl beads of laughter
for the poor chicken daughter
