The eggshell house. The eggshell house!
Beware of the eggshell house
step on the square with so much care
step on the line, only if you dare
see what happens if you trash
the rules of the eggshell house.
Don’t touch the walls lest you make fall
the eggshell house upon your head
upon your head will be disgrace
disgrace to haunt your sorry days.
You will feel shame, you’ll want to hide
hide from piercing eyes
eyes more eloquent than words
have your quivering heart impaled
your bleeding heart will seek solace
in the numbered steps
of the eggshell house.
