Day 18: bottle

Yes, I suppose a chicken would stick her beak in a bottle, if she thought there was something worth eating in there.

I think she’d be much more likely to peck it for the tink sound. I’m not the first to notice that chooks will peck things they cannot possibly mistake for food, over and over, because they appear to like interesting sounds.

In case you get too lazy to feed the chickens:

Of course, you’ll still have to water them.

I have a vague memory of a chicken tinking on a child’s xylophone, or maybe it was a child-sized piano. I think it was in an old movie. You could get the girls a toy xylophone.

Day 18!

If I could save worms in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to eat every one till I can’t eat no more
And then I might share one with you

If I could make mice taste even better
If dumb clucks could make wishes come true
I’d savor every mouse like a treasure
And when I’m full, I might give a dead one to you

You know there just never seem to be enough food
To share it like you want to do,
So I just eat it
In the pecking order I’m on top
so you don’t get to eat till I’m through
Just forget it

If I had a box full of crickets
And other bugs that scurry hither and to
The box would be empty, except for the bees
(Cause they sting when I eat them)
Those I’d all give to you

My sincere apologies to Jim Croce

It has been good to see Some Vegetable rhyming again in recent months!

Me too, Some Vegetable. But how nice that we can be fans 🙂

Which by the way—your lyrics were amazing.

Many more like that out there.
