It tastes just like chicken. . . .


 


 


We hobbled to the doorway


And peeped through the keyhole.


We wanted to steal a glance at Henry's new invention


But the lights went out.


 


Our excitement so rudely cut short,


We ran into the kitchen


To see what Hazel was brewing for dinner


But the lights were still out.


 


"She could use chicken legs," I cried.


"She knows we hate'em, and she hates us."


"We won't let her," Mathilda giggled.  "Sneak in a frog


Since the lights have gone out!"


 


Frog in hand, we slipped through the laundry room


And behind Hazel as she held up a chicken piece.


"Aha!  I caught you!" she cried, reeling around


As the lights came on.
