A Little Bird Told Me - PAD Day 14

A Little Bird Told Me

You never want to be
accused of killing the goose
that lays the golden eggs,
nor guilty of killing two birds
with one stone,
but I promise
there’ll be a chicken
in every pot
when the chickens
come home to roost.

Whatever you do,
don’t count your chickens
before your goose is cooked,
and never put all your eggs
in one salad.
A bird in the hand is worth  
two pecks (sans bushel)
and I haven’t got a clue
why the (rubber) chicken
crossed the road.
Your guess
is as good as mime.
