All of Us Chickens Stayed Home
Too cold to go anywhere today, chickens,
so let's just stay home.
Let's put away more Christmas decor
but leave out some winter reminders.
Let's put all the Christmas dishes
back in the cupboard,
and resolve to do something about
the mess on top--soon.
And let's put a pot of rich broth on the stove
(whispering now: chicken broth)
where we can make soup tomorrow.
And let's take the fabulous UK Christmas magazines
to bed tonight for one more flip through
before stashing them away for another year.
And that's just what we did.
