(Through Rose-Coloured Glasses)
Once upon a time there was a paranoid chicken named Chicken Little.
One day Chicken Little was pondering how to win the Great Canadian throw-down, when some thought hit him.
“Hey,” cried Chicken Little, “that’s it. The sky is falling. The Coalition is coming. I must go and tell everyone.”
So Chicken Little ran and ran, across and around the country, proclaiming, “The sky is falling, the Coalition is coming.”
Along the way to Little Italy, he met Henny Penny.
Henny Penny asked, “Where are you going, Chicken Little?”
“Oh, the sky is falling, the Coalition is coming!”
Henny Penny said, “How do you know?”
Chicken Little replied, “The end is near, either a majority for us or that Coalition. Keep it between ourselves; I almost form one myself in 2004.”
Henny Penny, “This is terrible, just terrible! We’d better hurry up.”
So they both ran away as fast as they could. Soon they met Ducky Lucky.
Ducky Lucky, “Where are you going, Chicken Little and Henny Penny?”
Chicken Little & Henny Penny, “The sky is falling! The Coalition is coming! We’re going to tell the people!”
Ducky Lucky, “Oh dear, oh dear! We’d better run!”
So they all ran down the road to Chinatown, as fast as they could. Soon they met Goosey Loosey walking down the roadside.
Goosey Loosey, “Hello there. Where are you all going in such a hurry?”
Chicken Little, “We’re running for our electoral lives!”
Henny Penny, “The sky is falling!”
Ducky Lucky, “And the Coalition is coming!”
Goosey Loosey, “Goodness! Then I’d better run with you.”
And they all ran in great fright across the country, spreading the rumour. Before long they met Turkey Lurkey strutting back and forth.
Turkey Lurkey, “Hello there, Chicken Little, Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky, and Goosey Loosey. Where are you all going in such a hurry?”
Chicken Little, “Big trouble!”
Henny Penny, “We’re running for our electoral lives!”
Ducky Lucky, “The sky is falling!”
Goosey Loosey, “The Coalition is coming!”
Turkey Lurkey, “Oh dear! I always suspected they would be coming someday. I’d better run with you.”
So they ran with all their might, until they reach the Voting Booth.
Chicken Little pointed at the booth, and told his followers, “Go quick, vote now, a majority.”
Then Chicken Little took off his costume, and revealed himself: Foxy Loxy.
