Egg me on
Tap me twice and
I’ll break for you
Find the faults that you’ve
Held me to
Watch the way that
I spill for you
Poke my yolk
Make me run
Scramble my thoughts
All over your face
A quadrille is 44 words, excluding the title. This week you must include the word “egg”.

I had to share it…
A brilliant title, Mish, and such a creative, quirky, Quadrille! I especially love:
‘Tap me twice and
I’ll break for you’;
‘Poke my yolk
Make me run’
All over your face’.
Thanks Kim! Loved the prompt.
A brilliant tongue-in-cheek extended metaphor! Well done!
