Eggs as a Movie Metaphor
Ever noticed that in all those old movies
Romance is not physical but its chemical
And love is never seen on the old silver screen
Only hinted at in messages subliminal
It’s always an evening together - a quick supper
They’ve always got eggs cause they’re sensible.
Then away fades the picture, the rest left to conjecture
Classic film love-making is always subliminal.
So to make censors and audiences happy,
Directors use eggs, both suggestive and sensible -
The old fertility symbol, as metaphor is nimble
And keeps the film clean and presentable.
