Mt. Clement Avenue
Chicken by Bertram E. Miller
I was out the backdoor, made the turn to go, Next door to, or maybe past, Grandmom, Grandpop's bungalow. Grandpop was in his backyard, over by the Wood Bin, Standing by the Axe Wheel, putting water in. He yelled to me "I'll show you something, come on over here!" I diverted my direction and Just as I got near... Grandpop grabbed a chicken, cut off its cackling head, It got loose in panic ran, smack into the shed. Bounced off like a rubber ball, or a ricochet, Blindly at full speed ahead, striking anything in its way. The frenzied chicken tried to fly, off some of its deflections, Racing crazily around, aimless in its directions. I stood there dumbfounded, watched the headless chicken scurrying, To shocked to figure why it kept, on bumping into everything. Barking Scout went chasing as the chicken zigzagged all around, Hitting trees, the Outhouse door and finally... the ground. Sporadically its legs kept jerking, as it laid upon its side, Then all its movements stopped, at last the headless chicken died.

Note: Grandmom and Grandpop Foster lived in a Green, one story bungalow next to us on Mt. Clement Avenue in Pine Hill, New Jersey. There was a path from our backdoor, around to the right behind our house over to their backdoor. It was a path I took on a regular basis in those early years. Back in those days we had Chicken about every Sunday and it was very common for many people to have Chicken Coups and prepare their own Chickens. Bert Miller
