Kiji

Flapping of plumage
Desperately needing release
Humane yet sad

(A memory of my dad having to put a peasant out of its misery after being hit by a car.)

Pecking around
Amongst the meadow grass
Hiding from guns

Xxx

Dull brown hens
Sitting patiently hatching
Colourful cocks

Xxx

Christmas dinner
Full of other poultry
Really tasty lunch

I hope your dad didn't really put a "peasant" out of its misery...'cause I think that's probably murder, not euthanasia! :)
