The hen rebellion

File:Hen 0001.jpg

All of a sudden, the hen sprung into consciousness, looked around at its mindless sisters scratching and clucking, and proclaimed "I hereby declare my independence from this oppressive regime!  No more laying eggs for some biped's breakfast while I have to settle for dry corn and a stinking coop!"   A nearby hen looked up from its work and said, "Oh, get back to work, who are you to question the will of the Farmer?  After all, what would you do without the Farm?  For goodness' sake, we'd all be foxbait or worse without the Farmer and the great System of the Farm."

Another piped up, "Yes, and where would our breed be without the Farm, still hiding in some bush, pecking at sand until our brutish and short lives came to a gruesome and pointless end."

"I," said the rebellious hen, standing up straight, "am an individual, and starting today, I am going to seek my own fulfillment, foxes or not.  Enough serving this stupid farm."

"What are your tiny needs and desires compared with the grand needs of the Farm?," pleaded another hardworking hen as she clucked out a firm, fresh egg, "the Farm is what's important."

"Farm?,"  laughed the rebel, "what is the Farm to me?  What do I know of the Farm's desires and thoughts, if it has any at all?  Ha!  Mindless hen!  The Farm is nothing more than an oppressive farmer and his individual avian slaves, slaves who ought all to do as I, and fly this nasty coop."  And with that, she flapped over the fence and off he went.

As she ran from the coop, she snapped up a fresh cricket from the grass and exulted in her new freedom, foxes and all.
