The Chicken Farm

Even before the chickens hatch

They know that death is not negotiable

Especially a death intended for the picnic table

The sacrifice of being born unrecognized

Until the butcher frees the farm

Of yet another bird

Whose stunted life becomes a boon

For yet another senseless celluloid cartoon
