Spam And Eggs - Poem by Stanley Cooper

The chicken or the egg, which came first?
The answer seems a mystery
It’s had great minds immersed
Throughout our thinking history

Perhaps this should be mentioned
To a fowl who’s in the know
The rooster could be questioned
Since he’s the chicken’s beaux

Perhaps he’ll try to fool us
And lead us far astray
Perhaps he’ll cock-a-doodle us
To send us on our way

I think we’ll never ever learn
The first one to have made it
Did the chicken take the very first turn
Then found the egg and laid it

Why fill our minds with useless spam
And all this chicken patter
I don’t really give a damn
It really doesn’t matter

    That was a bit weird Stanley, I read the first poem and the found the second poem
    and thought, perhaps the second was going to be different from the first, but no, it was just a double take. Having said this, I enjoyed the first as much as the second. Two for the price of one. GREAT! Love Ernestine XXX
