Of history's mysteries large and small
there's one remains atop them all.
As searches through antiquity
have failed to pierce it's secrecy.

Unanswered questions still surround
the origin of this, I've found,
which some accredit to the Frenchmen.
Gag gallows humor by some henchmen?

Resembling strangulated ducks
saved from drowning by cruel luck?
Smithsonian scholars scratch their heads
in 1939 was said

the Loftus Company did the deed
and introduced this special breed,
yet patent searches name no names
substantiating Loftus' claims !

A prop for the comedic chic?
Replacing bladders on a stick?
Much speculation for proof it lacks,
to flip the bird at poultry facts...

This birds no good for finger lickin'
just who invented the rubber chicken?

You have no idea, blind poet! He's just getting started!

Darn...and I had always wanted to write a poem about a rubber chicken, too!

Thanks Blind Poet, glad you liked.
Balladeer, actually I've written several, but don't let that stop you, I'd love to see your take on it.
