Eggs

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!
