Bird flu.

January 9, 2017

They've told us on the radio,
we've heard it on the news.
We've got to keep our birds in,
regardless of your views.


It's spreading across Europe,
we need to baton down.
It's our only chance to stop it,
please don't just watch and frown.


The great big poultry farmers
have listened to advice.
Don't be the one who doesn't,
don't make us pay the price.


It may not be convenient,
but we have to try our best.
Our hens look like small prisoners,
they're really not impressed.


So come on everybody,
yes, it does apply to you.
you may have twenty thousand
or only have a few.


This really could be serious,
so for all our peace of mind.
Go and get your chooks in
before you're the one who's fined!
