Fine Dining

evocative short poetry education

 

Do chickens hold their food in their feet while they are eating?

Some birds actually do,
The Ornithologists have declared,

Actually hold their food in their feet whilst they are dining,
Fine dining,

Eat with their hands,
Astonishingly,

As do a vast array of mammals.
