Over Easy


Screwed me over easy
didn't you?
Behind my back too!
Given enough heat,
I knew you'd show
your true colours.
Beware the dark side.
I doubt there's a crumb
of decency in you.
Broken up about it? Me?
I'm glad you're gone you
Yellow-bellied,
chicken livered jerk!

I like the way that you took literal images from the picture. I mean crumbs from the toast, yellow from the egg. Brilliant take on the photo prompt.

If you are a chicken, is being chicken-livered a good or bad thing? Nice twist on the photo.
