Why did the chicken cross the Road?

1. The Poets

Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) :

(1) Did the chicken cross the road?
Did he cross it with a toad?
Yes, the chicken crossed the road,
But why it crossed, I?ve not been told.

(2) Did the chicken cross the road?
Would a chicken take a toad?
The chicken took the load
across the road with a toad.

(3) Would you, could you cross the street
On your two small chicken feet?

I would not, could not cross the street
On my two small chicken feet.
Across the road I will not scram
Even though a fowl I am.

Would you cross it in Japan
To flee Godzilla and Rodan

Not in Japan
Godzilla and Rodan
I would not, could not cross the street
On my two small chicken feet.
Across the road I will not scram
Even though a fowl I am.

Would you cross the road and cluck
And jump to avoid the speeding truck?

Not with a cluck
to avoid a truck
Not in Japan
Godzilla and Rodan
I would not, could not cross the street
On my two small chicken feet
Across the road I will not scram
Even though a fowl I am.

Would you hop across the road
As though you were a garden toad?

Not across the road
as though a toad
Not with a cluck
to avoid a truck
Not in Japan
Godzilla and Rodan
I would not could not cross the street
On my two small chicken feet.
Across the road I will not scram
Even though a fowl I am.

Would you cross it in the night
Lit by passing car headlight?

Not in the night
With car headlight
Not across the road
As though a toad
Not with a cluck
To avoid a truck
Not in Japan
Godzilla and Rodan
I would not could not cross the street
On my two small chicken feet.
Across the road I will not scram
Even though a fowl I am.

Please dear chicken give it a try
For across the road you can not fly.

Alright! Alright! I'll give it a try
For it is true, chickens can't fly.
Hey! It's not bad, infact it's neat!
I truly love to cross the street.
Across the road I LOVE to scram.
I cross the road, a fowl I am. (By Chris Cracknell)

Mother Goose:

Mary had a little chick, its comb was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went, that chick was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day, at least that's what is told.
So she became famous in her own way,
As the chicken that crossed the road.

Sam Hunt:

So the chicken crossed the road
and also rode the cross
Our nation's boss the Southern Cross
Now bears his PALTRY load.

John Keats:

It was a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

Edward Lear:

(1) There was a chicken from Rome
Who had a most beautiful comb
You must cross the road
Is what he was told
Otherwise, you will never get home.

(2) There was a chicken from Del Mar
Who decided to travel quite far
So she became quite bold
And ran across the road
And jumped on top of a passing car.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

To be bold. Deeds are better things
than words. Actions mightier than boastings.

Dorothy Parker:

(1)Travel, trouble, music, art
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme
The chicken never said they fed its heart
But still they pass its time.

(2) Chicks that cross the road. Are never served cold.

(3) Travel, trouble, music, art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme,
The chicken never said they fed its heart.
But still they pass its time.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson: So that it could sail beyond the sunset.

Dylan Thomas: To not go gentle into that good night.

Walt Whitman: To cluck the song of itself.

William Wordsworth: To have something to recollect in tranquility.

Virgil: Arms and the chicken I sing, who first from the side of the road. To the other side driven by fate, came at last to the foot of the "don't walk" sign...
