Don’t like to sound “cocky,” but when I see something a cute little chick wrote for me.
I want to climb to the top to crow how she just made this old heart to grow.

I will never underestimate a chicken or her mate after sparring with “Words We Never Said ( Please see wordsweneversaid.)
You’re inspirational. And I bow to you with a tip of my hat!
(Please see original at Beware the Banty Rooster)
City slickers and their country cousins ought to know
How Roosters strut their stuff in front of pretty hens
In plumage preened and plumped to make a tougher show
Caring not a peck for the attention of their friends…
Keep a close eye on that banty rooster in the scratching yard,
Every city boy should learn before its way to late
Not to ever underestimate a chicken (or her mate).
1,000,000/yes . . . 0/no
Words We Never Said:
Can not top this in a million years.
you win, ML!
(Actually, we all win with such a poetic addition to the barnyard.) Thanks.
