Two slick chicks jump fence

Two slick chicks prowl about

One man runs outside

One man begins to shout


Two slick chicks happy and free

Digging around looking for bugs

Two slick chicks making a mess

But two slick chicks are eating the slugs


One name Henrietta

The other Mic

They love the game

Called catch the chick


They jump out

And wander around

The man sneaks up

Without a sound.


He grabs the chicks

And returns them home

Goes back inside

Leaves them alone.


They jump out again

They love to play

It’s a game we do

Four times a day!


For extra fun

They like to eat

Garden lettuce

And silverbeet.


Lucky the man

Loves them a lot

Or they would find themselves

In a pot!
