The chicken

Salted and peppered and floured then oil

Fried crispy

The smell

Delicious and deep

The salivating immediate

Fried to perfection

Served hot and skin crispy

Fighting for it

It’s the best

But I want it all

We share

And then it appears

The wishbone

We square off

We each grab a piece

Pull, stretch and break

The wishbone

Who wins?

Whoever gets the big piece

That’s who wins

The wishbone
