Crossed out

by Kevin Neylon
Originally published by on 11/12/2016

The chicken had crossed the road, rolled in the mud and crossed back again, and was delighted about being a dirty double crosser.

The turkey was jealous of the chicken, it had been after the road crossing job for years, and to be pecked at the post by the chicken was the last straw.

The fox had been tipped off, he’d been given the time and place of the crossing and was in hiding, waiting.

The chicken had the day off, and the turkey was given a trial, for holiday cover.

The turkey, so pleased, had forgotten about the fox.
