Have you ever

stumbled into

someone else’s nightmare?

You know you have

when splat!

raw egg is dribbling

down your face

a sticky mess

that defies a quick wipe

what to do

but allow the slime to slide

as you avoid all frying pans….

A quadrille (poem of 44 words) for dVerse including the word ‘egg’.

  1. Hi Janice! I did comment on your poem but for some reason it’s not showing. I think it could have gone to spam – that’e happened several times this week and is very annoying. I’ll check back again and if I don’t see it I’ll comment again. 🙂
