Benny liked to eat boiled eggs;
he’d eat them by the score.
As soon as he was done a plate,
then he would ask for more.
His mom once tried to feed him soup;
“Please eat it!” she did beg,
but he refused the steamy broth
between mouthfuls of egg.
Alas one night, at dinner time,
a dreadful thing occurred!
When Benny tried to ask for salt,
“Cluck, cluck!” is what was heard.
Today that child eats everything —
his favourite is ice cream.
But if he even sees an egg,
all he can do is scream!
