which came first?

the chicken 
(a good egg, really) 
crossed the road
(we wonder why)

perhaps to try 
and find out if 
the sky 
(why blue?) 
was really falling. 

we’re calling it 
a draw,
this Q&A, 
this interrogative 
way we have of 
(who what when where why) 
dubiety and pondered piety. 

and yet 
we ask 
for heaven’s sake,
how many licks does it take?  


PAD, day 24.
