Hen Haiku

Today is my art trading cards meet. I decided to use photos of my chickens as a backdrop for some original "hen haiku." I'm going to add a little colour by hand on the actual cards.
Here ya go. Click to enlarge.



I just about peed myself writing these. Good thing I appreciate my own sense of humour, eh?

  15. Haiku was ready.
    The I felt I got a kick:
    The Lady wants a Limerick.
    That's why I though it's wiser
    to offer both not, either. :)

    However I came to think of:

    Two hens who lived in London planned
    To walk to Melbourne overland,
    But, footsore in Southampton Row
    when there were still some miles to go,
    They thought it wise to not extend
    The Journey to the bitter end.
