Understanding Scarcity (Short Story)
Have you ever did something horrifying, so terrible, so unacceptable, that you knew deep down in your heart that you had to take action to change it? Well I did. Hi, my name’s Rosetta, but you can call me Ro, and yes I am a chicken. I live here on this huge farm about 35 miles away from civilization. Farmer Jake, our owner, he’s been very busy trying to get us chickens to mate so he can meet the demand of eggs by spring time, but the rooster he brought over from, Tennessee were a little… half baked if you get what I mean. So, one day while I was pecking corn off the ground, I over heard farmer Jake talking to Nancy his wife, and boy were they heated. I her farmer Jake telling Nancy, if they didn’t get a least 500 eggs by spring, he would have to sell the farmer, and they would have to move to the city, and Mrs. Nancy flipped her wig, she told him if he didn't get us pumping babies next month she’s leaving him, and moving back to her mother's place in New York. I felt really bad since it was kinda my fault. Oh, yea I forgot to tell you the terrible thing I did. Well one day while the rooster’s was asleep I sprayed the with skunk spray, so that maybe they would leave, and we would have to be forced to be with them, and my plan worked quite well may I add, probably too well. All of the hens in the coop refused to step near them fellas, they smell worst then them pigs, even after 14 washes farmer Jake couldn't get that stank off of them, so he gave them, a tomato soup bath, which turned there feathers all pink, it was he-larrious. Them roosters looked darn near like mini flamingos, but I still feel really bad for jeopardizing farmer’s Jakes marriage, I have to do something, one day while farmer Jake, was feeling us corn kernels, he broke this thing, with the words “ECONOMICS FOR DUMMIES”, I’ve been reading it, and is says economics is the social science...

Understanding Scarcity (Short Story)
Have you ever did something horrifying, so terrible, so unacceptable, that you knew deep down
in your heart that you had to take action to change it? Well I did. Hi, my name’s Rosetta, but you
can call me Ro, and yes I am a chicken. I live here on this huge farm about 35 miles away from
civilization. Farmer Jake, our owner, he’s been very busy trying to get us chickens to mate so he
can meet the demand of eggs by spring time, but the rooster he brought over from, Tennessee
were a little… half baked if you get what I mean. So, one day while I was pecking corn off the
ground, I over heard farmer Jake talking to Nancy his wife, and boy were they heated. I her
farmer Jake telling Nancy, if they didn’t get a least 500 eggs by spring, he would have to sell the
farmer, and they would have to move to the city, and Mrs. Nancy flipped her wig, she told him if
he didn't get us pumping babies next month she’s leaving him, and moving back to her mother's
place in New York. I felt really bad since it was kinda my fault. Oh, yea I forgot to tell you the
terrible thing I did. Well one day while the roosters was asleep I sprayed the with skunk spray,
so that maybe they would leave, and we would have to be forced to be with them, and my plan
worked quite well may I add, probably too well. All of the hens in the coop refused to step near
them fellas, they smell worst then them pigs, even after 14 washes farmer Jake couldn't get that
stank off of them, so he gave them, a tomato soup bath, which turned there feathers all pink, it
was he-larrious. Them roosters looked darn near like mini flamingos, but I still feel really bad for
jeopardizing farmers Jakes marriage, I have to do something, one day while farmer Jake, was
feeling us corn kernels, he broke this thing, with the words “ECONOMICS FOR DUMMIES”,
I’ve been reading it, and is says economics is the social science that tries to explain the choices
people make concerning the limited resources that meet their needs and wants. I also read that
scarcity is when you have an insufficient amount of resources to meet the demand, so since we
are not making any eggs, there is now a major scarcity of eggs, and that eggs (our resource) is
the factor of production (resources that are the building blocks of the economy.) Wow we really
need to start making eggs, I’ve decided to night I will sneak into the roster coop, and spray them
with skunk spray antidote to remove that horrible smell so we can reproduce with them to make
more eggs so farmer Jake doesn't have to sell the farm. When we laid our eggs, farmer Jake used
a lot of labor to package and delve those eggs to the people in the city, and I have learned my
lesson never mess with what you have going on in life, its there for a reason.
