A Distinctly Unappetizing Repast

A scratched and battered plate
Of unconfirmed and mysterious origin
A wretched expression
Of complete despair
And a putrid heap
Of steaming soggy eggs
Is it possible?
Can it be?
The word itself-
Almost as terrible
As the selection before me-
Sets a chill to my bones
And a cringe to my spine
Courageously, valiantly
I plunge my fork
Down into the mass
The blob
The eternally unappealing
The fork rises
Without asking my consent
And the egg, it wibbles
It wobbles
And it falls
With a resounding splat
Down to the floor
Oh well
One less squelching, squashing, squishing
To endure
