Chickens in Space

Listen to Shaun read his poem ...
There are chickens out there in outer space
In a spaceship parked by Mars
They come from an alien barnyard
That floats amongst the stars

They don’t seem to be very friendly
They all wear a nasty scowl
No one knows what they’re planning
But it’s probably something fowl...
