Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road


Animals emerge: fox learn to hunt, raccoons to forage, no more dumpster diving for them The turkeys reclaim the topography of mother’s yard Boars descend from the mountains of Barcelona Cats roam free in Cyprus. Goats cause havoc on the streets of Llandudno and they say zoo animals miss us

What is born, we only borrow Like adoptive parents we should be most careful of our charge

The day will come when

we will crouch down again

to peer into a vernal pond

look into the eye

of a crowned newt looking back -

so willing to be merciful to one so undeserving

We should be grateful

if another chance is granted
