Egg cup and bulldogs


A Clipped Conversation

The bulldog clip and tiny child
on shoulder carried, meek and mild,
approached Sir Egg Cup and enquired
“Can you help, sir? We’re lost and tired.”

Answer Egg Cup gave them none,
the spoon inside his head had done
such damage when it stirred his brain,
and sent his knowledge down the drain.



Line count: 8
Rhymed couplets in (mainly) trochaic tetrameter
For Express It In Eight, 10.08.21
