Tummy Eggs


I am Geoff Shaw
And sure I am
On women’s rights
Don’t give a damn

Do you like eggs?
The non-snake kind
Let’s save them all
But keep in mind

I’m hoping for a baby boom
Without once mentioning the womb
I cannot call it uterus
I find the word too humorous

I pay no heed to ovulation
Tiresome rules of fertilisation
To keep your eggs in the safest place
The tummy sure has lots of space

Do you want abortion law
Rewritten by the same Geoff Shaw
Who spouts this tummy egg deception?
(It’s not his only misconception)

And so Geoff Shaw are you a dummy?
We’re not denying eggs are yummy
But storing them within a tummy
Will not help you become a mummy


(With apologies for anapaestic meter crimes.)

Geoff Shaw, Independent MP, Victorian Parliament: “Here in Australia we can’t kill snake eggs but we are quite happy to kill an egg in the tummy and it should be the safest place for a baby to be.”
