The Pen Mentality (Day 10 Of The 12 Days Before Christmas Poetry Challenge)

Greetings all! I thought it would be fun to take the 12 Days of Christmas song and use that as inspiration for a series of 12 poems from now through Christmas Eve. In case you have forgotten or don’t know, the 12 Days of Christmas song talks about a series of 12 gifts given to a true love the first 12 days of Christmas. Using the gifts as a guide, I will be putting up a poem each day by 9am Central Time. These poems will incorporate the gifts or the idea of the gift into different or modern contexts. Since this will be happening the 12 days before Christmas, I will be going from gift 12 down to gift 1 instead of the other way round. Hope you enjoy!

Gift 3- French Hens

Those that cluck and peck
At any information
Exclusive for the misery of others
Please don’t fault them so
For they themselves are victims
Of their own lives
Picked clean of nourishing sustenance
