A Cackle of Goodies in 2017!
Another fresh start, roosters will soon crow Let’s hatch inane puns to go with the flow Hard boiled or easy These yolks may be cheesy But there’s much to reflect as year-ends go What can we learn from the humble coop? Among its kind not the brightest group Well, Mr. Trump this year Amid sporadic cheer Showed us hearts not minds can win a troop The thing to be learned from it I guess— Is much can be achieved by those who press Why cry fowl Or throw in the towel Only a hen ever sat its way to success Like the chicken, if you find yourself stood Wondering whether crossing a road is good Do swiftly gauge Your particular cage-- As it’s the other side you covet, you should When opportunity squawks and you heed You’ll find that hardships are chicken feed A rotten egg or so Isn’t enough to slow The ride to any dream you feel you need And if the plumage of avenues has dried up All your fair-feather friends nobly tied up A wild goose chase Wouldn’t be out of place To get your poultry in motion, sunny side up! ====================== HAPPY 2017! ====================== Here’s hoping this year brings a cackle of goodies for you and your loved ones--best of cluck!
