What will you do will your gifted Hen?
If you receive a gifted Hen from a precious someone,
what would you do with it for tomorrow's sake?
Would you whine that it should have been gold?
Only to lose it to lack of appreciation.
Would you slaughter it and make a feast?
Only to hunger thenceforth and start begging.
Would you feed it fat and sell it for higher gain?
To have money to pay some bills and save?
Would you groom it to lay eggs that keeps giving?
And end up having a chicken farm as an investment?
To this question there's no right or wrong,
the decision you make is your loss or gain.
What you do with your hen
Can determine what you do with every gift you receive.
You are a gift to the world; do you know that?
Everything you have is a gift from God
Do you reject, squander, save or invest it
Would you'd be poor, just get by or wealthy
What you do determines how you'd end up:
Lame, Blame, Shame or Fame.,
