When chick­ens squawk­ing in the coop
squat down on their chicken legs
they’re some­times mak­ing chicken poop
and some­times mak­ing chicken eggs.

If you are smart you’ll make darn sure
you know which one your chicken’s makin’,
since eggs will please you rather more
than poop with orange juice and bacon.
