My Hen Renni

My Hen Renni

I get a little misty, now and then,
When I think about Renni,
My pet hen.

A polish crested chicken,
She was smart and sweet,
Asking only for love,
And some mealworms to eat,
And a warm arm to nap on
Every now and then.
That was sweet Renni,
My pet hen.

She was never a layer of eggs,
like the rest,
She was meant to win ribbons,
The best of the best.
But alas, she won none,
For her life was cut short
By a freak duck stampede,
I must sadly report.

Yes, poor Renni has perished,
Her life left incomplete,
By the cruel hand of fate,
And 500 webbed feet.

This poem is my tribute,
So I raise up my pen
In remembrance of Renni,
My pet hen.

Canarsie Climb?

Canarsie Climb?

A young racing tortoise named Ned,
Full speed toward Canarsie once sped,
Then decided to hurkle,
Thus forming a circle,
And rolled to East Flatbush instead.
