Chicken Little – a Brexit Tale

One day a piece of sky fell and hit Chicken Little on the head.

Chicken Little rushed over to Henny Penny and said: “The sky is falling in, and a piece of it hit me on the head.”

“Oh no,” said Henny Penny, “that can’t be true. I think it’s just Project Fear. Don’t worry.”

“No,” said Chicken Little, “a piece of the sky did hit me on the head.”

“OK” said Henny Penny. “We’ll go discuss it with Cocky Locky.”

And they did. And Cocky Locky said “Oh no, that can’t be true. I think it’s just Project Fear. Don’t worry.”

“No,” said Chicken Little, “a piece of the sky did hit me on the head.”

“OK” said Cocky Locky. “We’ll go discuss it with Ducky Lucky.”

And they did. And Ducky Lucky said “Oh no, that can’t be true. I think it’s just Project Fear. Don’t worry.” 

As this is a children’s fairy story you know that we have to repeat this a number of times. So eventually a small crowd of farm birds – Chicken Little, Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Drakey Lakey, and Goosey Loosey go to Turkey Lurkey.

And Turkey Lurkey said “Oh no, that can’t be true. I think it’s just Project Fear. Don’t worry.” 

“No,” said Chicken Little, “a piece of the sky did hit me on the head.”

“OK” said Turkey Lurkey. “We’ll go discuss it with Foxy Loxy. He gets around in the world, knows a lot of people,. He really knows what’s going on.”

So they all went to see Foxy Loxy who said “It’s just Project Fear, don’t worry about it. Why don’t you come in and I’ll fix you all a lovely hot drink.”

And they did. And Foxy Loxy whistled as he put a cauldron of water on the stove.

Foxy Loxy, having already eaten Henny Penny, Cocky Locky, Ducky Lucky, Drakey Lakey, Goosey Loosey and Turkey Lurkey, was about to tuck into Chicken Little, when the entire sky fell in as the earth unintentionally crashed out of the Solar System, killing Foxy Loxy.

“Screw me!” Foxy Loxy thought as he died, “Chicken Little was right. It wasn’t Project Fear after all!”
