She was in her coop with dozens of other chickens. It smelled, and she couldn't go anywhere without stepping in her own feces. She dreamt of a
bigger better world. She realized though that there was no hope for a chicken in the world. Not without someone there to feed her, and care for her.
She was trapped.
One day, as she was doing her standard egg lay, she heard a commotion outside. Screams!! She dare not step outside to see what had happened. She
was scared. Some time passed before looked outside. There, she saw it. It was horrible, a massacre. She found pieces of her family everywhere, and
a trail of blood leading to a hole in the fence. What had happened? She dare not stick around to find out, after all, whatever did this could surely
come back. And that's the only hole, meaning no escape if the monster should return.
She slowly stepped out through the hole in the fence. She saw which way the blood trail led, and figured it would be a smart idea to go in the other
direction. She hadn't been out before, and didn't know what to expect. She heard noises she'd never heard before, and saw things that boggled her
itty bitty chicken mind. One thing in particular. There was a piece of hard ground. Not like the dirt she had been walking on before, this was
solid, and had a line going down the center. She looked one way, and the ground continued as far as she could see. She looked the other way, and it
was the same thing.
She thought to herself, "I could walk that way, but who knows how long that would take. I could walk the other way, but I'd be in the same
predicament." Maybe the best route would be to simply cross, to get to the other side.
Then she got hit by a bus.
