' ' ' ' 'One Fried Egg(For My Old Pal Al) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Like God said
to make Time

you have to crack open
the moment

crack open

the next moment.

Bit like making
an omelette

...ya gotta
break eggs.

So that life is like
making one long continuous omelette.

Ya only get
to eat it

when yer dead.

Or like a short order cook
making one fried egg after

one fried egg


...one fried egg.
