They say the egg is an ovoid
which I always thought
was something like
Ovid, known for
his performing
eight hundred
summersaults in
towns & villages
all across Sicilia
places like Syra-
cusa and Selinunte
before he was banished
to the Outer Zone of the
Major Leagues and traded
to the Chicago Cubs along with
two outfielders and an aging spitballer
for a hotshot kid pitcher named Krimosos.
