The Egg Van Man

Driving around in my big truck full of eggs,

Requires skill and balance and sturdy legs,

Ballerina toes at the brakes,

Caressing the steering wheel,

At every corner I make,

Avoiding speed bumps and holes in the road,

All so I don't wobble my load,

I visualise the yolk in my mind's eye,

Put the air-con on so no-one fries,

Each journey is a test of my skill,

How many eggs can I manage not to kill?

It's not a job for everyone,

It calls for care and precision,

The last thing you want,

Is egg on your face,

After a head-on collision.
