As Sure as Eggs is Eggs!

(Samuel Peralta in Form for All at dVerse Poets sets us the task of writing a tritina. Do follow the link to see what it is all about.)
We found it near the nursing home
a fungus like the yolk of egg -
and quite close by, a broken shell.

The idea came first from the shell:
we took it and the fungus home
and left them out to look like egg.

Oh, no! My carpet! Ruined! Egg!
They'd done their jobs, fungus and shell,
as mother's cries wailed through our home.

(We flash-cleaned home of egg and shell!)

Haha, boys will be boys, your poor mom almost 'cracked' up over it. ;-)

A truly inspired practical joke, attacking the recipient where she lived (in both senses of the phrase).

Brian Miller said...

haha bet you still got in trouble...but that is def something i would have tried to pull growing up too...smiles.

Heaven said...

I would be wailing to with fungus and shell at the carpet ~ I enjoyed this light narrative ~ Happy Friday ~

Lydia said...

Very fun, Dave. Not sure why, but I am envisioning an Easter egg hunt gone all awry!

Laurie Kolp said...

lol... so cute and light, Dave

Daydreamertoo said...

LOL... Yes, boys will be boys.
I bet it looked real too though.
Thanks for the first morning smile Dave :)

Very charming. And quite wonderful to manage in a form. K.

Mary said...

This made me chuckle, Dave! I love that you 'painted' this scene with a light brush.

Wolfsrosebud said...

LOL... I didn't think a nursing home could have any humor

Sarah Laurence said...

Ha! A whimsical humorous poem is always fun. Still, I'm relieved these poetic kids cleaned up the mess for poor old mom.

I was waiting for the chicken joke..but this is better..

Claudia said...

haha...thanks for the smile..we brought all kind of strange things home...and were surprised when mom didn't like them...parents can be really strange...smiles

Rachna Chhabria said...

Don't know why I thought of a chicken egg :(

Helen said...

A+++ for acing the form ~ entertaining us in the process.

Lolamouse said...

Oh, your poor mom! Actually, I think I may have preferred the egg on my carpet to a fungus!

Tommaso Gervasutti said...

This reminds me of a trunk of a tree that grew leaves later which with the help of two friends I could manage to carry, making it roll actually, in a ground floor room where I lived. It was a mess of a room even more a mess now with a partly molded trunk in it, but I loved it.

My (boy) cousin put plastic puke on my aunt's new couch. I can still hear her, 50 years later. Fun one, Dave.

Beachanny said...

Very clever use of the form- entertaining and informative as well. Never saw fungus the color of egg yolk. Good trick to pull as it did no harm! Enjoyed the way you wove it as a poem.

kaykuala said...

Some good fun being boys! Thanks for sharing Dave!


hedgewitch said...

What fun, David. I can see the whole thing.

Semaphore said...

That made me laugh out loud! You did something rare there, hang a humorous poem on a serious structural form. Well done!

Dave King said...

Interesting - and sometime amusing - the thoughts and pictures you report as coming to mind upon reading of my japery.

Thanks for them all. Regretfully, time is of the essence just now (what DOES that phrase mean?) and I cannot get around to you all to reply - and in any case, I guess you've heard enough on my childish tom foolery.
More important, I think, that I discover what's going on on your blogs.

sreeja harikrishnan said...

interesting...funny....all smiles..but i really wail with the mother....

Ygraine said...

Had me in stitches!
Just the sort of prank I'd have pulled as a child! :D

Lydia said...

Well, just look at what Samuel said! He is 100% right. :)

Dave King said...

Yes, I do see what you mean. I didn't see it from her point of view back then, of course!

Well you have to... don't you?

Dissertation writing, social discourse is ok, suffering every literary discourse, but also in prose discourse, must not have been cited, but since the inspiration is music, I wrote documents or more days ago
