Instinct

It’s rare to find a chicken
with a PhD in Math.
They don’t seem to be attracted
to the academic path.

I’m not criticising chickens
— the opposite is true —
they seem to know instinctively
which pathways to eschew.

So you’ll never see a chicken
as Vice-Chancellor or Dean,
though I’ve seen a lot of Deans
act like chickens.
