CHICKEN
by Gordon Dioxide



One day the sky fell down and hit Chicken Licken on the head.

"I thought that was going to happen" said Chicken Licken.

He had a great big bump on his head, so he set off to tell the doctor.

On his way he met Monkey Grunkey, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"Mind your own business" said Chicken Licken, and he carried on to tell the doctor that he had a great big bump on his head.

On his way he met Elephant Belephant and his sister Melephant. They said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"We'll come with you" said Elephant Belephant, but they couldn't because their trunks had been tied together in a knot.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Goldfishy Boldfishy, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"I'll come with you" said Goldfishy Boldfishy, but he couldn't because goldfish can't walk.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Sheepy Weepy, who cried

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I do wish people would stop bugging me" said Chicken Licken "I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head."

"I'll come with you" said Sheepy Weepy, but he couldn't because his mum said he had to tidy his room.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Hippopotomousy Zippopotomousy, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"I'll come with you" said Hippopotomousy Zippopotomousy.

Now Hippopotomousy Zippopotomousy did have legs, and his room was tidy, and he didn't have a trunk that was tied in a knot. So he was just about to go with Chicken Licken when someone undid his tummy button and his bottom dropped off.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Fish Finger Mish Minger, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"I'll come with you" said Fish Finger Mish Minger, but he couldn't because Chicken Licken ate him.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Felt Tip Pen Belt Bit Ben, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"I am the doctor" said Felt Tip Pen Belt Bit Ben.

"No you're not" said Chicken Licken.

"Yes I am" said Felt Tip Pen Belt Bit Ben.

"No you're not"
"Yes I am"
"Not"
"Am"
"Not"
"Am"
"Not Not Not"
"Am Am Am Am Am Am Am Am"

And then Chicken Licken pulled the lid off Felt Tip Pen Belt Bit Ben, and threw it in the river.

So Chicken Licken carried on, and on his way he met Humpty Dumpty, who said

"Chicken Licken, where are you going in such a hurry?"

"I'm going to tell the doctor that I've got a great big bump on my head" said Chicken Licken.

"I'll come with you" said Humpty Dumpty, but then there was a great CRASH! as Humpty Dumpty fell off a wall.

Eventually Chicken Licken arrived at the door of the doctor's surgery, but he didn't have an appointment so the nurse told him to go away.

Then he saw the sign on the door.

It said "Doctor Felt Tip Pen Belt Bit Ben".

"Oh dear" thought Chicken Licken "I'll have to bandage it up myself".


Here are a few questions to see if you have been listening ...

Why couldn't Elephant Belephant and his sister Melephant come?
Why couldn't Goldfishy Boldfishy come?
Why couldn't Sheepy Weepy come?
Why couldn't Hippopotomousy Zippopotomousy come?
Why couldn't Fish Finger Mish Minger come?
What would you do if the sky fell down?
