Men That Lay Eggs

There once was a man who
Laid a egg
When the egg hatched
It was a elegant

The bird had no wings
And pooped spiders
With no legs

And those spiders laid eggs
That one day
In into men
That laid eggs.

    Dear Richmoo Silverstein, I read your 'Men that Lay Eggs'. Egg laying men is very interesting. I appreciate your imagination. Kindly read my poems, especially the ones I traslated from our literature 'ThirukkuRal', the latest is 'An Esteemed Person'

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
