Oh, the Eggs & Toast That You’ll Make!
by Dr. Moira
This week is your week.
Breakfasts up for critique!
You have eggs in the pan.
You have toast on your plate
You can get out your camera
Don’t worry about being late!
You're free to join in. And you’ll be welcome, you know.
And YOU are the foodie who'll decide what to show.
You'll look at the round-ups. Look 'em over with care.
About some you will say, "Oh, I’ll never compare!"
But, with your pan fun of eggs and your plate full of toast,
Whatever you choose will be great for your post.
You may think up some combos
That will use all your skills.
But it’s the end of the month,
And your budget is nil.
It's o.k. to take a break
From the posh foodie scene.
Here the toast is always tasty
And the eggs sometime green!
Over here you can rest
Without worry or care
Well…you might have to rhyme,
Or write a limerick, if you dare.
Still, when you join in the fun,
You’ll feel good. Even flash!
Just make a simple breakfast.
There’s no need to spend cash!
OH! THE EGGS & TOAST THAT YOU'LL MAKE!
You'll be on Cook Sister!
You'll see your name up in lights!
You'll join the other foodies
who use up bits and bytes.
You won’t feel a bit nervous, or any kind of stress.
It’s EoMEoTE! You’re guaranteed of success!
Whatever you make, you'll fit in with the crowd.
Whenever you post, you’ll do Jeanne quite proud.
Except when you don't
Because, sometimes, you won't.
I'm sorry to say so
but, sadly, it's true
and missed EoMEoTEs
can happen to you.
You can get all hung up
By a schedule that’s quite packed,
And you’ll miss all the fun.
Sometimes that’s a fact.
You'll get Cook Sister’s feed
And you’ll feel your heart sink.
Look at all the entries!
And the jokes, pics, and links!
That's not for you!
Somehow you'll remember
That the month is now waning.
You'll make a great breakfast
With whatever’s remaining.
With camera in hand,
once more you'll feel great!
Ready to snap what you’ve made.
The eggs and toast on your plate!
OH! THE EGGS & TOAST THAT YOU’LL MAKE!
There is fun to be done!
There are new dishes to try, there is admiration to be won.
And the magical thing is you’ll meet new friends, too.
The foodies ‘round here are sweet through and through.
You'll miss out sometimes,
as you already know.
You'll get involved
in so many events as you go.
So be sure to make note.
On PDA and on wall
and remember that EoMEoTE’s
such a great ball.
Just never forget to stock eggs and some bread.
And head straight for the hob when you get out of bed.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
FOODIE, YOU'LL HAVE A BLAST!
be your name Johanna, or Andrew, or Sam,
or Anthony ‘“Spicey” if you please, m’am!’,
You’ve got to step up!
This month is for you!
Your breakfast is waiting.
Show us what you can do!
O.K., this is so incredibly late, even by EoMEoTE standards, that it's pretty ridiculous. But, I had so much fun ripping off Dr. Seuss' "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" that I decided to post it anyway. Viva La EoMEoTE...and thanks for another great theme, Jeanne!
