Just a Lady

Chickens on the homestead
Roaming in their pen
Clucking, pecking, roosting
Squawking now and then

I watered them and fed them
I cleaned their little coop
I made sure they were healthy
A happy little group

Their eggs became a staple
Fresh food to share and eat
We worked them in the garden
And butchered them for meat

I was “The Chicken Lady”
But now those days are done
A wily fox invaded
And killed them…every one
