The Rooster gets his say

The rooster gets his say

 

A cautious toe curls around the threshold

Apparently something with feathers seems a bit cold.

A something with wattles and a beak

A disobedient chicken,

who heard of a fire in the hearth some speak

 

Cautiously Pik enters, Skrik right behind

A spot in front of the fire they hope to find

 

“Out!” They were commanded

A fireside seat the chickens still demanded

“No!” they were answered

Their spurs ensured that their wish was granted

 

In front of the fire they huddled,

The battle was won

Yet for those who disobeyed them,

The battle had just begun…
