Men That Lay Eggs


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

The bird had no wings
And pooped spiders
With no legs

And those spiders laid eggs
That one day
Hatched
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'
