A poem about eggs.

A breakfast staple: it holds the meal together. I prefer it all separate, though, to prevent the yolk from running everywhere and messing everything up. I mean, just scramble your goddamn eggs, for Chrissake, or, better yet, just avoid eating eggs altogether, like it’s some kind of religion. Speaking of which: if you’re going to eat syrup, it better be with waffles. At least the grids can catch some of the stuff—with pancakes you might as well drink syrup soup. I’d take anything over syrup soup, no doubt about it. Except maybe runny eggs. Maybe I’ll start a restaurant, or supermarket, or something.
