Egg On Your Face

Eggs upon a plate,

The only proper place.

Doing something stupid,

Gets you eggs upon your face.


It wasn’t done on purpose,

Just weren’t paying attention.

The piper now you’ll pay,

Regardless of your intention.


No one is actually perfect,

This is the reality.

With eyes in back of your head,

No faux pas, potentially.


So, don’t become too cocky,

As perfect as you can be.

You’re just a human being,

No getting away scot-free.


Upon this subject before us,

I could go on and on and linger.

When the mistake is yours,

At no one point your finger.


A quote by someone whitty,

Said with so much charm.

Admit your mistakes quickly,

“Crow is best eaten when warm.”
