Pecking
Strutting
Laying
Standing,
These are the acts of a chicken.
As I crouch and watch them
Go about their daily business
I never cease to ponder the question:
Are they ever curious as to what
Is beyond their wood and wire cage?
They seem so content with
Living in a single spot.
Memory must not matter
Because bored they never seem.
Pacing
Sighing
Rushing
Thinking,
These are the acts of a human.
As I perform these mindless tasks
I wonder why it is so hard.
Contentment is a rarity
Passing only on occasion.
Never am I satisfied
With my daily routine.
No matter how hard I try,
I constantly wonder
What is beyond my home.


The author's comments:
I randomly started to write this as I passed by my chickens walking around in their yard. It's not meant to be a serious poem, just matter-of-fact and slightly humorous.

Although this poem has a cute and witty exterior, on the inside i found it to be extremely repensive. Very nice work!

A pretty good poem. I can see this being in a poetry book, but just not one i might read. Sorry, even though this is good, this isn't my type of poetry...

TheWordSmith, 

Thanks so much for your encouraging comment!  It is wonderful to know that someone took notice of what I said and even partially agrees with me.  I know exactly what you mean about all the wordly posts out there and that's why I try and make mine known! God bless you as well!  <><

I really like this poem! And... I just wanted to say that reading that God and Jesus are your heroes on your bio, and seeing the suggestion you made on a forum that it is better not to date until you are ready for marriage, is really a breath of fresh air amongst many worldly posts/stories/etc. that I have read. <>< God Bless!

Wow, this is a great poem!  I've actually wondered about the same thing. :)  I really have no criticism for this.
