Sometimes the egg must crack

(Pre-Script: This post pairs best with the song," The Story," #42 on the playlist. click it on, then come back and resume reading. I'll wait...) (...still waiting.)
Sometimes the shell of egg will crack
(it's actually quite thin)
clear to whitish murky mess will drip out
and yellow yolk.

The yellow yolk
does not always stay
together in one round yellow piece-

Sometimes the yolk breaks too.
The hard shell
only needs to be banged a time or two
on anything, really
and it will crack and out will spill
the insides
so have a bowl or frying pan handy

to catch the egg now dripping from the shell

(which seems firm and together on the outside,

but is actually quite thin)
