Chickens
are really dinosaurs
I’ve studied
them while I do my chores
their eyes are beady
their legs are scaly
and their footprints belong in a museum

Chickens
ain’t hardly birds at all
they are reptiles
who strut instead of crawl
and the demand-a
for Colonel Sanders
would drop if people
knew what they was eating

Of course most scientists now think
that the dinosaurs were warm blooded
and a few even say
they are not all extinct
’cuz some of them evolved into birds

And chickens
they are the living proof
that the dinosaurs live
and that’s the truth
So why pay Spielberg
for special effects
go out to the coop
and take a good look
at Gallosaurus rex
