, ,

I’m an unfertilized egg
accidentally hatched,
pecking in the dirt
with my chickenscratch.
Fox in the henhouse
looking for some dinner.
Looks at me like a
Three Piece and a biscuit.
I’m not trying to be in her.
Keeping my eyes peeled
for the Snake in the grass,
forked up tongue always
flickering fast,
who pretends to warn me
of the Hawk in the skies,
but my trust is always
paid back with
pennies on my eyes.
