the Great Egg Shortage for Writer's Cramp
24 lines

Sam Adams was an economist
For the Cosmos Institute
Specializing in freak economics
The economics of ordinary life.

He was studying
The great egg shortage
How and why it happened
And the impact on everyday life.

Eggs it turns out
Are in a lot of things
And eggs are very popular.
Almost everyone ate them.

So people notice
The price of eggs
More than other food items.

And there is no price elasticity
Associated with eggs
It is not something
You can easily substitute.

He concluded that the price of gas
And the simple egg
Could lead to the republicans
Taking the House and Senate.

Note the second time in a week I won the contest!!!! Must be doing something right.
