“soft as eggs”

Written for:  The Twiglets #295 - soft as eggs

My grandparents ate
soft-boiled eggs.
Looked like diseased,
dripping eyes.

She always egged on
her soft-spoken,
timid friend.

sits admiring
garden, and brilliant-hued birds
soft blue of robin's egg

          He mercilessly egged his friend on
            to the stage for Karaoke song.
                After many beers
           his friend felt less fear,
    so he grabbed mic without fright, and bombed.

    No fun egging folks. Good verses.
