Easter Eggs–Poem 4

People are like Easter eggs
of many different hues
some you find immediately
others  found with clues

A few of them are basket cases
some of them are rotten
some of them just roll arouond
others lie in cotton

You cannot always judge the egg
by the color of it's shell
Pretty is as pretty does
You need the taste and smell

Egging Them On

Did you see the house that got egged last night?   Wonder who egged the pranksters on?  Bet they weren’t good eggs at all. The yolk was on them when the cops showed up.  The eggs weren’t the only runny things. That cracked me up. Guess the planning wasn’t egg-quisite enough although their defense was that they were just egg-spressing themselves. I’m dying to know who they were. If it were my house, I would think they were just being shell-fish.

Egging- verb or gerund, to urge someone on to do risky or foolish.  Also a prank where people throw eggs at a house, people or cars.

eggs (humpty dumpty)There is something about making Easter eggs or trying to avoid children shouting and hunting for Easter eggs that can bring out the rotten or hard boiled egg punster in many of us.  Bet Humpty Dumpty is not the only one who will take a great fall during the scramble to find all the eggs.

Have you ever been to the White House Easter Egg Roll?  According to the website (which features a count down to the event, “(t)he first Easter Egg Roll of the Trump Administration will be held on Monday April 17th, 2017 from 7:30AM – 6:45PM.
