Have A Good Day

cooking-chicken

it is slaughter day
nowhere to hide
from the task
I tarry a while writing
to stay guiltless

they will know instantly
although the last episode
taught me caution
I cannot allay
unease

I’ll say to those cockerels
remaining of you ten will
depart plucked and
dressed in plastic
to rest at ease

forgive me
have a good day
