Benedict

PAD Challenge, Prompt #5:  write something either goofy or serious

He egged her on,
cracking up at his
scrambled jokes
evidence that
his brain was fried,
beating the punch lines
nearly to death,
no yellow-bellied
chicken afraid
to poach laughter
out of her hard
boiled shell,
keeping her
sunny side up.
