An Egg's Life

The life of an egg

Is not a good life

Always in danger

Of being cracked, whisked or beaten

By a fork or a knife


You could be boiled alive

Or scrambled

Or omletted

And an egg's life is often regretted

Because more often than you can tell

They never get chance

To break out of their shell


Not all eggs are doomed

Some are luckier than the rest

And don't get plucked

From their mother's nest


There they will stay

Beneath mother hen

To hatch into a chick

And not get eaten by men.
