Chicken Eggs

What came first
The chicken or the egg
Or does it really matter

If eggs started
Then the chicken after
Then 21 days is the game

We eat them both
No matter what
So what's all the clucking

Now consider this
You have hens and roosters
Without each, no egg appears

I have the answer
Don't question your mind
It all seems very clear

If the egg has a rooster
It's only one of the two
Then where will the hen appear

It's a question of cycles
There is the beginning
And there is the end

So there's the answer
Immaculant conception
This happened to a chosen hen
