Hungry Near the Hen House

Hungry Near the Hen House
by Linda Hoffman Kimball

A gremlin from lands of the Nether
With a face creased and ugly as leather
Rubs his greasy old chin.
Then he launches right in
Gobbling chickens from toenail to feather.

It’s a crazy, busy time here. I've got plates spinning,
balls in the air and I’m putting out small fires all over the place. Maybe I should craft another one about a juggler. Writing this one has made me hungry so I think I’ll go look for a tasty morsel to eat….
