I walked in and saw them
Chickens! Chickens! All around!
They stampeded toward me
Chickens! Chickens! They shook the ground

Can chickens inspire fear?
You've never seen such a waddle
You may think they're slow and dumb
I've seen they choose to dawdle

Chickens! Chickens! They're closing in!
Clutching their food, I turn around
I trip and fall
I'm on the ground

I'm drowning in a sea of feathers
I struggle under clawing feet
And then they're past me, I can breathe
All they wanted was food to eat

This made me laugh! Good job on writing a happy poem! Very comical and silly, but extremely well-written. Great job! Can you please check out my work too? I would love to know what you think :)
