A Song for Purple Bonnie

A tribute to Bonnie who suffered a multiple fracture to her femur following life in an enrichment cage which required the surgical removal of the entire damaged area of bone.

Purple Bonnie lying with bowls

Our Bonnie lies inside a basket,
Our Bonnie lies over the rug,
Our Bonnie’s reclining on crochet
And looking incredibly snug.

Bring back, bring back
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

Our Bonnie looks fetching in purple,
It’s very on-trend in Milan,
Though calcium drinks she now slurples,
She’s the trendiest hen in the land.

Bring back, bring back
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

Our Bonnie is sporting a bandage,
Our Bonnie has rather bald skin,
But Mel now has got this in handage,
And Bonnie won’t always be thin.

Bring back, bring back,
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

Fair Bonnie has won our good wishes,
(For who could be deaf to her plight?),
And though she is laced up with stitches,
She’s such a remarkable sight.

Bring back, bring back
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

She hippity-hops to her food dish,
It’s never too far from her side,
And filled to the brim with nutrition,
As fans watch on FaceBook with pride!

Bring back, bring back
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

But Bonnie has one leg now shorter,
She’s lost a good inch off her bone,
And though doing well like she oughta,
She’ll spend a while yet on her throne.

Bring back, bring back,
Bring back our Bonnie to health,
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.

A bright orange blanket beneath her-
An eye-catching traffic cone hue-
In laurels we lovingly wreath her,
Our little champ’s victory is due.

Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back our Bonnie to health.
Bring back, bring back-
Compassion’s how we measure wealth.
