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

But 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.

An Egg's Life - A short funny poem about the trials of becoming a chick.
