THE FORUTH VERSE OF THE EPIC OF BEOCHICKEN


Beochicken Verse IV
THUS ONCE MORE APPEARED OUR HERO
THE CHICKEN WHO HAD FOUGHT AND BLED
BLED AND FOUGHT AS HE CRAWLED TOWARD THE NEST
THE MOTHER HEN COME BACK FOR HER DEMON SPAWN
BEOCHICKEN MIGHTIEST OF FOWL STOOD TALL AGAINST
NO OTHER PATH REMAINED THE BATTERED FOWL
SOON THE FRYER MIGHT COME FOR HIM BUT NOW HE FOUGHT
TEARING AND STRIKING THE MASSIVE MOTHER
WHO HAD BROUGHT FORTH THE THREATENING OTHER
ALONE BEOCHICKEN STRUGGLED WITHOUT BLADE OR CLAW
THE HEN THREW HIM ASIDE STILL UNHARMED
BEOCHICKEN CALLED OUT
NO STRENGTH FILLED HIM AS HE CROWED
THE DARK HEN CAME UPON HIM SETTING HIS FRIGHT
HE WOULD EVER SHARE THIS TALE
THE PITIFUL DEFEAT AT THE HANDS OF THIS BEAST
BUT THAT WAS NOT THE END
NO THE HERO WOULD NOT DIE THERE
BEOCHICKEN SEARCHED AND CALLED TO NO AID
UNABLE TO LIFT UP FROM THE NEST HE FEARED
WHAT FOWL WOULD NOT FEAR IN THAT PLACE
YET IN ALL HIS FEAR HE SAW A CHANCE
IN THE NEST LAY A BROKEN BLADE
NO DOUBT TORN FROM THE LEG OF A BRAVE FOWL
IT WOULD BE THE ONE AND ONLY CHANCE
GRASPING THE BLADE IN HIS BEAK HE DREW UP
WITH ALL HIS MIGHT FADING AWAY HE ROSE UP
AS SHE CAME DOWN TO FINISH HIS TALE
THE BLADE STRUCK UP AND LODGED IN HER
THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH TO FALL THE BEAST
BEOCHICKEN WAS BROKEN AND BATTERED
HE HAD NO STRENGTH REMAINING
THAT HAD SURELY ONCE MORE BEEN THE END OF HIM
BUT UNARMED AND WITHOUT MIGHT
THE GREAT CHICKEN STILL HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO FIGHT
THE BROKEN WING OF THE MIGHTY FOWL PIERCED FORTH
LIKE A BLADE THE SHATTERED BONE PIERCED HIS FLESH
AND THE FLESH OF HIS FOE AS WELL
THIS WAS WHERE HE WOULD DIE
THAT WAS WHAT BEOCHICKEN ACCEPTED
AND WITH THAT HE SACRIFICED THE REMAINS OF HIS WING
THE DARK HEN AND ITS FOWL CHILD WERE BOTH VANQUISHED
