First in Line

An egg becomes

a being–living,

walking, talking

quacking, flying.

Where do eggs come


Where did the first

egg come from?

Everybody in the

early grades

wants to be

first.  In line.

They “fight” for


The first egg

probably just

rolled along

and showed

up from ? somewhere

with no competition

because it was first

and didn’t have to

fight until another

egg showed up.
