The chicken on the roof quickly sings
“Coccoccooo! Coccoccocooo! Coccoccocoooo!
She squats, and lays an egg which is no sooner out before
it rolls across the broken tiles
and crashes to the ground.
The dog pounces
to joyfully lick and eat it up.
Everyday the chicken
and everyday the dog
joyfully licks and eats the egg;
and everyday the farmer
over to the side,
sees the scene.
He waves a ladder in the air:
the dog barks,
the chicken flutters.
Two blows to the neck! Quickly plucked and straight into tonight’s soup!
The night passes and…the moon up in the sky laughs
It’s daytime…the sun lights up the rooftop
And the dog waits…?…
Just for today, skin and bones instead of the
