Identity crisis indeed! Don't we all wonder what critters are thinking when they look at us??

Good one!

Cute Haiku the first line is wonderful! It was a great take on the prompt for his expression. I had a tough time with it myself...

Don't mess with the rooster!

Terrific!!

Peg said...

I could think of many crisis that could occur. But just having a rooster looking at you that way is no good. Have you ever had your toes pecked by a chicken? Good Haiku.

dana said...

NAILED it!!

Arian said...

cunning!!

Kristen Haskell said...

That is a fun Haiku.

Marilyn said...

I don't want to be watched by the baleful eye of a rooster.

Oh I know, when I look into the eyes of animals I wonder what thoughts are beneath, behind those eyes. Wonderful Haiku.

Perfection... and I don't often say that

SuziCate said...

Too funny; this is great!

Brian Miller said...

ha. love you haiku...that last line rocks!

Wysteria said...

Very well written. One could read many messages in these few words. Nice Job..

I have owned chickens and they have these little beady eyes that do stare at you, and they cock their heads too... weird little beings.

There is a good chook!

little hat said...

A bit unnerving that look I agree. clever use of the haiku. Do you know the old story about drawing an X in chalk on the ground in front of any chook and having the poor thing then fixated on that spot for hours. True? Urban myth?
