Packed Lunch

Packed Lunch

A secretary, peripatetic,
Brought lunch in a snack box, hermetic.
When she cracked an egg's shell,
The sulphurous smell
Worked swifter than any emetic.

  1. Well penned! Just reading about the smell makes my stomach clinch. I remember while in high school some kids would break β€œstink bomb” vials in the halls. Your words took me back in time. Worst smell ever!
