Order UP (Sonnetina Due)
When hatched then orphaned what’s the fix?
What do they do with baby chicks
They’re sent to Foster Farms I guess.
Bad joke here kid, I must confess.
I wonder what you might think worst,
To go as egg or get fat first?
I’d say the egg is insensate-
and chicken feed is not that great.
So Jimmy’s fate is not so bad.
Serve me with toast and I’ll be glad.
