Or spiders on the wall! Scary. :) "Fate is in your hands" mades one feel sorry for the poor thing!
"or is it merely hieroglyphics".... Really good one, Helen! That question is the mark of being in a state of denial! Rick
Ah, but if it was all left to fate, wouldn't we often be in a stew! Nice write.
I wouldn't leave my fate in anyones hands to risky. "Merely Hieroglyphics" now that's classic line if i ever read one.
"my fate is in your hands" might be considered a normal 'chicken' way of dealing with it.-- KayKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
"My fate is in your hands" and so is the axe! ha!
I love this Magpie because there are so many funny posts. Great use of the picture!
Our chooks ate everything - not just spiders!
A chicken's fate is a sad one, I think. Always in the hands of the cook.
He does look a little scared, doesn't he? Here's my Cock of the Walk
Oh poor thing...Loved the magpie though.
great take on the theme!:)
That last line resonates.And then that picture just plain makes me laugh.I keep the words and picture apart, as I think there is great seriousness within the few lines.xoerin
So true Helen....well spoken for the prompt! :-)
oh dearHa ha..loved this bit of humor
The chicken's aren't giving up. They'll be around, KFC-like or otherwise!
Haha...he does look a little scared, doesn't he?
Aw c'mon, it isn't like you were gonna win a Nobel Prize or anything. So, what do you think, stuffing or potatoes with?
PS--after that comment, I hope I won't be haunted by a poultrygiest.
"Merely" indeed. Hell of a thought. Hell of a post. Bravo.
Helen,Coq au Vin for some aspiring new artist from the left bank I'm sure.Nice observations of the whole of the image!rel
Sounds as though he is for the pot! LOL
have mercy on me, a stewer
The big eye looks as if it might be closing...soon. Nice post!
He better run....I can see that chopping block....bkm
i feel sorry for the cock.. frenzy!
Looking into my crystal ball your fate is original recipe with slaw, mashed potatoes and gravy :)
he has heard tales from tom the gobbler...the gig is up :)
Wonderful! I wonder what his fate is?Teresa
Beware of those hands!
I thought it was spindly spiders on the wall, rather than writing! LOL:)
Really great use of the picture, love it :)Short Poems
and perhaps the axe in the other hand...smiles.
..or is it merely hieeroglyphics..clever!!
Nice assemblage of images, Helen. Would that we could all be that knowledgeable about our own fate.Thank you for your kind words on my story.
My fate is in your hands- really scary words those; if the rooster could speak, that is exactly what he would say. Nice Magpie.
super fine tuned piece.
I do like this one. I do feel a little sorry for the chook.....until I think of the nice stew I could make with him...!
You caught the mood of his wary eye.
It's enough to make one think very carefully about whether to eat or not eat fowl ever again! Great write!
Nice way to link your keen observations to your words, Helen.
nice catch...perfectly fitting haiku
Helen,This is thought provoking.keep us posted.you are a real poet with authentic talent.cheers.xxx
