Fred the rooster decided he has had enough of country life. He headed off to town to strut his stuff on the concrete sidewalks.
It was a little scary walking thru the speeding traffic, dodging cars and mean dogs, but the journey was all worth it, when he stepped into Derves Drug's and up to the soda fountain. A chocolate Italian soda, billowing with whipped cream & sprinkles, just what he had been dreaming about, Heaven on earth!
Then when he thought life could get no better, in walked a beauty of a chick, Anna. She hopped up on the stool beside Fred. They sipped soda's and talked all afternoon.
As the day wore on rooster Fred decided he'd better head home. After all the coyotes and owls come out at night and would love to have a nice chicken dinner.
Fred had lost track of time and was a little late getting down the road. He got stopped at the railroad tracks and impatiently hopped from leg to leg waiting for the cars to be filled with wheat. In the distance he could hear the dinner bell ringing at the farm. By the time Fred arrived at his coup all the corn had been gobbled up by the hungry flock.
Next time Fred don't lallygag so long in town.
