A chief handed me a brown chicken as a token of appreciation for treating the sick in his village.
Reaching home, I secured the hen to a bush in back yard with a strip of dressing. I went into the house to bath and cook supper.
Screeching sounds erupted. Peering out the window I saw the brown fowl running wild in the middle of the path. I dashed outside and chased it down the trail. Several farmers ran after me. I thanked God they were helping me to catch my hen. And at last one grabbed the bird.
While the men escorted me back to my home I glanced at the chicken in the villager’s arms. “Please keep this hen for yourself. I no longer want it. It is just too much trouble.”
The farmers frowned and shook their heads.
Arriving at my house I found my brown hen still tied to the bush.
Don’t be hasty or you could be arrested for chicken stealing. The farmers ran behind me pursuing a chicken thief, me.
Wait, check a situation out and think things through. Never jump to conclusions.
