Poached Eggs

If I am staying overnight...I always
tell my host...I want two eggs for breakfast
and... I like them poached on toast... I have
my morning eggs at home...But frequently my wife
...Has her ideas concerning how... I ought to go
through life...She says that eggs are just as
good...When heated up to boil... And surely they
require less...Of trouble and of toil...Sometimes
the children want them fried... Or scrambled in
a mess... And she reminds me that I should...
Promote their happiness... And so I naturally
enjoy... My breakfast with a host... Who knows I
want a pair of eggs...And like them poached on
toast.
