For Lack of An Egg

for lack of an egg
the cake wasn’t made
for lack of the cake
the party delayed

this lack of an egg
is no laughing matter
this lack of an egg
means lack of cake batter

this lack of an egg
you think is a joke
this lack of the albumen
this lack of the yoke

for lack of an egg
the cake must be ordered
for lack of an egg
the hen must be slaughtered

  6. eggsclamatious!

    Very good, thouroughly enjoyable read, funny and light and well written yet...

    yet...the image of a slavik grandma poised, meat-cleaver in hand, caught in the morning sun, a chicken on the wood board below her at the sink....squawk!!

    Very good!
