ONE day Henny-penny was picking up corn in the cornyard when whack! something hit her upon the head.

Goodness gracious me!

said Henny-penny; the sky's a-going to fall; I must go and tell the king.

So she went along and she went along and she went along till she met Cocky-locky.

Where are you going, Hennypenny?

says Cocky-locky.

Oh! I'm going to tell the king the sky's a-falling, says Henny-penny.

May I come with you?

says Cocky-locky.

Certainly, says Henny-penny.

So Hennypenny and Cocky-locky went to tell the king the sky was falling.

They went along, and they went along, and they went along, till they met Ducky-daddles.

Where are you going to, Hennypenny and Cocky-locky?

says Ducky-daddles.

Oh! were going to tell the king the sky's a-falling, said Henny-penny and Cocky-locky.

May I come with you?

said Ducky-daddles.

Certainly, said Henny-penny and Cocky-locky.

So Hennypenny, Cocky-locky, and Ducky-daddles went to tell the king the sky was a-falling.

So they went along and they went along, and they went along, till they met Goosey-poosey.

Where are you going to, Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, and Ducky-daddles?

said Gooseypoosey.

Oh! were going to tell the king the sky's a-falling, said Henny-penny and Cocky-locky and Ducky-daddles.

May I come with you?

said Goosey-poosey.

Certainly, said Hennypenny, Cocky-locky, and Ducky-daddles.

So Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, and Goosey-poosey went to tell the king the sky was a-falling.

So they went along, and they went along, and they went along, till they met Turkey-lurkey.

Where are you going, Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, and Gooseypoosey?

says Turkey-turkey.

Oh! were going to tell the king the sky's a-falling, said Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Duckydaddies, and Goosey-poosey.

May I come with you, Hennypenny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, and Goosey-poosey?

said Turkey-lurkey.

Oh, certainly, Turkey-turkey, said Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, and Gooseypoosey.

So Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey all went to tell the king the sky was a-falling.

So they went along, and they went along, and they went along, till they met Foxy-woxy, and Foxy-woxy said to Hennypenny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey: Where are you going, Henny-penny, Cockylocky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey?

And Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey poosey, and Turkey-lurkey said to Foxy-woxy: We re going to tell the king the sky's a-falling.

Oh! but this is not the way to the king, Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey, says Foxy-woxy; I know the proper way; shall I show it you?

Oh, certainly, Foxywoxy, said Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey.

So Henny-penny, Cockylocky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, Turkey-lurkey, and Foxy-woxy all went to tell the king the sky was a-falling.

So they went along, and they went along, and they went along, till they came to a narrow and dark hole.

Now this was the door of Foxy-woxy's cave.

But Foxy-woxy said to Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkeyturkey: This is the short way to the king's palace: you'll soon get there if you follow me.

I will go first and you come after, Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-turkey.

Why, of course, certainly, without doubt, why not?

said Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey.

So Foxy-woxy went into his cave, and he didn't go very far, but turned round to wait for Henny-penny, Cocky-locky, Ducky-daddles, Goosey-poosey, and Turkey-lurkey.

So at last at first Turkey-lurkey went through the dark hole into the cave.

He hadn't got far when Hrumph, Foxy-woxy snapped off Turkey-lurkey's head and threw his body over his left shoulder.

Then Goosey-poosey went in, and Hrumph, off went her head and Goosey-poosey was thrown beside Turkey-lurkey.

Then Ducky-daddles waddled down, and Hrumph, snapped Foxy-woxy, and Ducky-daddles's head was off and Duckydaddies was thrown alongside Turkey-turkey and Gooseypoosey.

Then Cocky-locky strutted down into the cave, and he hadn't gone far when Snap, Hrumph!

went Foxy-woxy, and Cocky-locky was thrown alongside of Turkey-lurkey, Gooseypoosey, and Ducky-daddles.

But Foxy-woxy had made two bites at Cocky-locky, and when the first snap only hurt Cocky-locky, but didn't kill him, he called out to Henny-penny.

But she turned tail and off she ran home, so she never told the king the sky was a-falling.


The End.
