Sat down for breakfast –
Ham and eggs.
One rose from breakfast –
Laid more eggs.
“Let’s do it again.”
The three haiku are based upon the old story that follows:
A pig and a chicken were walking along one morning and the pig said, “I’m hungry. How about breakfast? Cereal sounds good.”
The chicken said, “No, I want ham and eggs.”
The pig thought a moment and replied, “No, ham and eggs wouldn’t be good.”
The chicken said, “Why not? What’s wrong with ham and eggs?”
The pig replied, “For you, it would only mean a contribution. For me, it would mean total commitment.”
* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.
