Eggshells

The chicken conquers
The shell
To inherit the fear
Of walking on them

    This is such a unique take on walking on egg shells, tackling the chicken... I enjoyed this one, Marlon! Btw you gave me a scare with your comment, for a minute back there I though you were referring to your Soup acct! Sorry I wasn't able to hear you live on the show, my connection zonked out the time, and it's still slow now with non stop rains, but promise to listen to you in the archives soon! I can imagine what a strong voice you have! :)
