Chicken Speak--To Be Or Not To Be

TO BE OR NOT TO BE that is the question. Whether tis nobler to walk on egg shells or rather to boldly strut cock fierce.
To plant one foot in the hen house and the other at the foxes lair exhibiting super Gumby flexibility and strength.
Or to simply roost in the nearest Mango tree dreaming of Iowa corn fields sinewy stalks crunchy kernels liberally sprinkled with red lipped white grubs.
And to fertilize with flair that extra special egg the one that stands out from the rest.
The good egg
that breaks the mold that breaks wind with a certain HEN NA SAIS QUOI!
That one egg that exemplifies everything chicken.
That one egg that the others defer to when things get scrambled.
That one egg that flies in the face of adversity and comes out smelling like a ham.


Happy Mother's Day!

Not forgetting  the remnant who exist in the outer reaches of space and time who are voracious  for new mat…
