Revenge - Poem by jan oskar hansen

The big fat Plymouth sat on the window sill
watched the farmer, who had had a stroke, lie
helpless in his bed. The fowl jumped down
crossed the floor jumped up on the man’s chest
watched him some more then pecked and ate
his left eye. A noise, in the house, the bird
took fright and jumped back out, ran crossed
the yard and into the hen house where it
clucked and laid four eggs. When the farmer
got better and was able to walk again, he found
the Plymouth and in revenge bit its head clean
off; this caused another, this time fatal, stroke
and no knew why the dead farmer had a bird’s
head in his mouth.
