What's for Breakfast



The chicken looked at me
Imperiously
And said
Don’t try to distract me
With that
‘Sky is falling’ shit
Those are my babies
Scrambled on your plate -
Barbarian!


Here is a humorous poem for Poetry Jam, a great site for writing prompts.  To go there and read more click on the title.  This poem is one I wrote awhile ago for Magpie Tales, another great site and that's the picture is from.

  1. lol- That is funny. It reminds me of a friend who always tells me the sky's not falling when I'm stressing out about something.

  14. this is really funny and i find it matching the expression of the chicken in the picture. in a deeper sense this is something we don't think when we partake a delicious dish of scrambled eggs. are we supposed to feel guilty?

  15. Fallenelegy - Actually, eggs that you buy at the store are not fertelized, so enjoy that omlette without guilt. Of course we won't mention the bacon...lol
