Oh Egg….

Oh egg – behold ye – snug in nest,
And feathers, fluffy down.
Naively locked – so firmly pressed
In shell o’ flawless brown.

This perfect curve, infinity,
Still keeps the world outside,
Holding some divinity
Trapped fast, not time-allied.

A tiny orb of innocence
Content to sleep within…
But when to press and strive for sense
A worm may burrow in…

Whether pecked or premature
Cracked open for a feast,
That step into the light, for sure
Twice breaks this poorly beast.

The sun will melt upon a plate
Before ye mercy beg,
Despite perfection, ’tis too late…
For troubled little egg.
