Happy Hen by Ivor Cutler

The happiness of birds is not reflected on their faces. 
Strictly, birds do not have a face - just organs around the head. 
If a hen looks badtempered, it is due to a superficial disposal of its features, 
and if you place your ear by its beak, it may well be heard humming 
a contemporary dance tune in a happy, thready fashion.
