Swooping

Today I saw a red-tailed hawk
Swooping ’round the hens
As I walked out to feed them
It dove straight for the pen

I ran in time to stop it
The girls were all inside
They shook with fear and terror
A hawk, they can’t abide

It circled and it hunted
It had no fear of me
I guess I’ll have to watch it
My ladies can’t run free

I told them they were prisoners
I told them they were fine
Just stay inside this prison
At least, until we dine

unnamed
