I work at Chick-fil-a for a summer job. Yesterday being July 5, was as slow as mud so I wrote this about work while waiting for customers to show up.
********************************************

The Chicken Boy

The great cluck
Is my king
Just my luck
He summons with a ring

As I cook filet
I hear him say
That today
There shall be no play

For there are customers to wait
And they shall not be late
Because it is fate
That these chickens be ate

So I work off my tail
Until Iím pail
And fry the chicken without fail
For I shall prevail

I cook the strips
Which have no lips
To utter their quips
Of their trips

And the nuggets try
With the craftiest of lie
To tell you why
They should not die

As to the chargrill
They can be such a pill
When they try to stop the kill
Until they are nil

The Henny is my friend
Upon whom I depend
To take the chicken which canít fend
And put it to an end

I am the chicken boy
And it is my ploy
To fry this chicken with joy
As is my employ.
