Every yolk must break

Every yolk must break

A Poem by Glen's not so clean slate
"

Contemplating over an eggsalcent breakfast. Yummo

"
I am seldom good
At most nonsense things

I cannot cook
You a gourmet breakfast
I burn all of the eggs
Every
Single
Time

Every
Single
Yolk
Will
Break

Alas
The beautiful things I want for ye
Cannot be translated
Into reality

Maybe I can sing to ye
But often
My voice falls flat
An uncanny habit

But I can brush ye hair
The knots
When ye day has become too much
To bear

I am not good at much
But with the lord Jesus Christ as my captain
I will be good to ye
I swear

Bring to life the old saying, "It's the thought that counts" I like your ideas of how you would show affection if the skills were yours to wield. Nicely done.

I really loved this! It was effective and entertaining. However, I did cringe at the first use of "ye", and then cringed further at every successive use. It doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the poem, and seems laughably pretentious (which I don't think was your aim).
I don't think it's worth sticking to the rhyming scheme so much that you have to use "ye". But, you are the captain of your own soul ;)

Thank Ye kindly for ye review
I always enjoy a writer with a quirky sense of everything. Nothing more boring than clichés, of which you have none. I also very much enjoy a self-effacing look at the world, as ego & pride are over-rated. Love the final zinger including Jesus in such a resounding yet casual way. This poem displays a ton of originality! *smile*

it's like the commercials.....that say "you don't have to be a perfect parent, just be a parent" and adopt...

i think we don't have to be perfect lovers either, we just have to love.

Broken eggs will scramble.... not to worry.

It's the thought that counts and the tender, loving things like brushing her hair that will win her heart and keep her close .

Thanks for reading, so true... Personally, I love scrambled eggs. ;)
OMG Glen you break my heart...how tender and poignant this poem is. A sensitive plea to your lady fair, that is so sweet and endearing...what woman could resist burned eggs, flat singing- and a loving man brushing your hair at the end of the day?? Your expressive pictures are worth a thousand words as well. And your sense of humor Rocks! Love, love this!
