I’m Only A Little Salty About This Guest Poem by Katrina Ivers

Because you are a chemical

You don’t wear a size nine shoe

But you are so oft-forgotten

No one knows that but you.

We all worry so darn much about

Your friend Sodium’s consumption

We think you aren’t an important part

And that’s an erroneous assumption!

Why Sodium all on her own

Is a terribly temperamental sort

Prone to explosions when meeting water

So her friend Chloride we should court.

Alas most people barely passed

Their college chemistry classes

So by ignoring Chloride, friends,

We risk the explosion of our asses.

Ode to Awesome Chickens (Guest Post from SB”CAG”BPCTWNMYB(P)

From Helen:

My chickens make me breakfast.

They’re the best that pets can get.

Eggs fried, poached, or scrambled,

And even omelette.

I object to killing chickens!

That’s simply just not right.

They give us free-range organic eggs

And even put themselves to bed at night.

Wyandots and Orpingtons,

Barred Rock, Black Copper Marans too.

If you sup on glorious chickens,

There’s something wrong with you!

My rooster calls out to his hens

for succulent treats like corn.

He guards against sneak hawk attacks

And even wakes me up in the morn.

Oh Eggs of many colors

My chickens lay for me.

Pink and blue and brown eggs

And even eggs of green.

My chicken each have fancy names

Miranda, Romona, and Stormy Blue.

You want to eat my pet chickens?

How could you! Shame on you!

If poultry poetry ain’t your thing,

I ask, Please don’t blame me.

All I did was complain about poultrycide,

Hence this bad poetry contest, You see?

Thanks Helen!

Chicken Couplets (Guest Poem from S-BC”CAG”BPCTWMYB[P])

By Katy:
Chickens are so much maligned,

But if you look I think you’ll find

That if a chicken lays an egg or two,
That’s much more work than me or you. 
When you die it’s with a selfish craze,

But a chicken gives back with a ginger glaze!

And so to chickens you should be kind,
For they seem most helpful to my small mind. 
Thanks Katy!

Guest Poem from the Semi-Bicentennial “Chickens Are Good” Bad Poetry Contest That Will Not Make You Bald (Probably)

From Bill:
Chickens are oviparous,

I’m sure you realize.

They generously produce for us,

Eggs of every size.

These eggs do nourish some of us,

and for that we are thankful.

(Others they make malodorous,

but we do forgive your stank, Phil.)

Chickens have earned their place in heaven,

don’t you realize?

With a little flour and leaven,

you get “Chicken Surprise!”

Thanks Bill!
