The Eggspert

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Jim took an egg out of the box,
And held it up quite candidly,
Then, bless his little cotton socks,
He cracked it single-handedly.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He blithely poured the contents in
The boiling water pot,
Then tossed the shell into the bin,
With an unerring shot.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 After several minutes he,
With spatula, did fish
The egg out of the pot with glee
And place it on a dish.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It was the best egg ever seen,
The reward of great endeavour,
Though Jimmy Greaves had always been
The greatest poacher ever.


Okay, an oeuf is an oeuf.
