I divorce thee Egg

I was fourteen, energetic, idealistic, a closeted radical of sorts.  
Injustice grated into my senses; suffocated my realms.
But boy was I too shy to fight it overtly.
Then I saw him… smooth, dark brown and handsome.
I didn’t care if he was an egg, I knew he was my knight and I was a damsel.
He, it was, who would battle my wars, bandage my wounds and lift
my heart from its cringing sadness.
The object of my derision being as it were Carl, the school bully.
Egg and I hatched a plan; I aimed; he missed Carl, but got the principal face on.
My elusive fantasy of liberation dissolved into a sickening rotten stench.
And thus started my nightmare in a hell called boarding school.
… I never want to see you again Egg...

    Ha!...Love your sense of humor! So you were a naughty young lady in school? Well, I was a naughty young man who got kicked out of private school and had to attend public school his senior year...My father was on the faculty there and he was NOT pleased...I wander what happened to poor Mr. Egg? (Probably continued hatching evil plots I suppose) - Tim

    Love this one. I like the way the story develops and has a nice punch line at the end.Might have changed Carl's life if egg had reached its destination.

    Vicky, it was cruel of you to write that last line (...I never want to see you again Egg... ) I'll find myself laughing out loud when I should be quiet.
