Your title totally convinced me to click on this piece. I chuckled over it. Great story and lesson.
This is the cutest! Good take on the topic and even though he was a chicken, I was relieved with the happy ending. Nice job!
Just an aside, can a chicken named Charlie lay eggs? :)

Creative perspective! That was fun -- I was watching for the Kentucky Fried Chicken sign to show up.

An adorable fable. I was thinking he'd make it across the road and straight onto the chopping block and someone's soup pot. This is really cute.

ROFL! This is just too, too funny! I'm glad that Charlie did see the wisdom of his mother's words. This would make a great children's story! ^_^

Great title and an easy to understand explanation of the proverb. Couldn’t help thinking however that the story needed a few more chicken jokes interspersed for good measure!

Cute story. The only red ink I have is POV. You switched from third to first and back. At least now I know why the chicken crossed the road! LOL
