The Odd Ball
The rooster cock-a- doodle -doos ;
Good morning how are you?
The sun with warmth kisses the cheek;
From sky of morning hues.
The chicken sits upon new eggs.
She laid in early morn;
The farmer rises still while dark;
To feed them all with corn.
Among the chickens clucking there;
One odd ball stands so tall.
He has a beak and feathers though;
He's not the same at all.
He walks around and struts his stuff;
He must not know his fate.
I wonder if he knew the truth;
Would turkey fill our plate?
Thank the Lord for yummy turkey;
For giblet gravy too.
Just remember to be thankful;
Cause, the turkey could be you.

When Olsen found Mike the next morning, sleeping with his "head" under his wing, he decided that if Mike had that much will to live, he would figure out a way to feed and water him.
Have you ever heard any strange sayings about birds? One of the sayings I heard as a kid was " He's running around like a chicken with his head cut off." I never really understood what the saying meant until we visited my grandparents home in the hill of W.Va., We were visiting our grandparent for Thanksgiving when my brother and uncle were told to go out and kill one of the chickens for supper. They went outside to catch one and when they did they cut the head off the chicken, but the chicken didn't stay still after his head was gone. He lost his head, but his body didn't seem to know it. The chicken ran around with his head cut off.
I have heard people say the saying " He's running around like a chicken with his head cut off" When they are referring to someone who is running around in a hurry to get something done.
When company was coming over, my mom would be rushing around doing things to be ready on time. Someone would ask my dad, "Pete, Where's Carol"? He'd say, Oh, she's in there running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, tryin' to get everything ready for tonight's company.
