Egg, The Oval Charm

Atul Chandra Sarkar

Egg, the oval charm,
Does more good than harm,
Whether its from your backyard,
Or a poultry farm.

Egg, the capsule,
Of minerals and protein,
A cluster of vitamins,
Which make you ever-green.

Like sun, the yellow yolk shines,
Midst a cloud white,
Which of the two is better?
Is a medical fight.

Does an egg a day,
Really keep the doctor away?
Or does its cholesterol,
Has something else to say?

I am sure everything,
Is good in moderation;
How can egg be all bad?
It's symbolic of Creation!
