Ode To An Omelet

Fluffy, light and yellow
You are a splendid fellow

Stuffed with mushrooms, parsley and thyme
Yours is a flavor uniquely sublime

Some, who are good enough to teach
Have filled your insides with ginger peach

A firm, quick stroke to slit your belly
And the yolk oozes out like quivering jelly

Intermingled with fine Parma ham
Though there are some cretins who substitute spam

A soggy pulp at Rose's diner
At Brennan's you couldn't be finer

Making you is quite an art
For you need such
A gentle touch to fire your heart

A skillful fold for you just begs
Lest you end up as scrambled eggs
