What if Edgar Allen Poe wrote "The Chicken" instead of "The Raven"?
Imagine, what would happen if Poe was obsessed with chickens and wrote "The Chicken" instead of "The Raven"?
Whether you're a teacher or student, you'll enjoy a good laugh as chickens invade and change some of the world's most famous poems in this poetry chapbook into: "The Charge of the Lightly Battered," "Cluck-a-Din" and even "T'was the Night Before Crispness"
Excerpt from Cluck-a-Din:
You may talk of chicken taste 'in
When you've quartered chicken out there,
And you've seen plenty of cock fights
And eat'in the los'in one;
But when it comes to barbecu'in
You will do your work on a hot grill,
And you'll lick the bloomin' sauce off a hen that's got em.
Now in Texas's sunny clime,
Where I used to spend my time
A servin' up dishes of Marinated Chicken,
At all them black bean chili stands.
The finest rooster I ever knew
Was our Rhode Island Red, Clucka Din.
