For breakfast that day, I had scrambled eggs
and wrath,
stirring so vigorously, I sprained my wrist.
I ate my portion and threw the rest away,
even though he was sitting there,
hungry and waiting.

Today’s prompt at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads was to write about one of the seven deadly sins or seven heavenly virtues.

  1. I have to wonder if the sprained wrist was worth seeing the look on his face as his eggs were tossed. I think in some cases, a little pain for satisfaction’s sake is fine. 😀
