Chicken Debate # 1–UNFUNNY



I BELIEVE in finishing

what I start

even if it means

the finish of me.

DID it get DRY

UNFUNNY in here?

I didn’t detect the plane veering off course

Crashing?

There was that bump

a bit of turbulence

but HELL

that was yesterday?

After all chicken shit IS biodegradable!

Fowl language isn’t the cause of all of our strife.

Chicken scratch doesn’t deplete the Social Security Fund.

Swigging corn-based Ethanol does produce sassy chicks but

we won’t have to call in the Occupy Movement

or hire an attorney

or seek arbitration

to sort through it.

Perhaps

a fan waving

a cold turkey

de-hazing of cabin atmosphere

a compromise

Let’s calm down

assure the passengers

that all is WELL

NO NEED TO press the panic button.

The Captain is still in control

that missing parachute means NOTHING!

I’ll tell you what

how about

you take your idea of funny

and open up another MacDonald’s

and I promise not to throw any shovels

of chicken scratch

on your high ARCHES.

How about you try

and notice

the many

KFC’S in your neighborhood

keep your  PopEYES

on the DELIVERY?

How about

you slow down

and remark

later in the day

wait long enough to notice

the number of days

hours

minutes

it takes to boil

this hard boiled egg?

It requires

more than talent

It requires more than intelligence

it requires maintenance and

persistence

it requires

non plagiarist use of

and repeated close contact with

a wide assortment of muses

of varying degrees

of competency.

It requires INspiRATION

PersPIRATION and DURATION

and those endangered birds are either

in the Kitchen nuking up some gourmet scratch

or would rather roost in the overhead bins.

No chicken should have to travel alone

down in baggage

in the windowless land of unfunny

IT GETS COLD AT NIGHT

without a blanket of understanding

to claw and peck

blindly through

the hard packed

stubborn

callow

dim terrain.

It requires MORE

than your average ROOSTER

to fertilize these yolkless eggs

to tame

to refine

these would be cacklers.

It requires finesse

a certain gen na sais quois

joie de vi·vre

low lighting

ambience

and fore-play.

IT REQUIRES

FINISHING

WHAT YOU STARTED.
