Violence in the Kitchen
She breaks an egg
She beats it up
She whips the cream
She cracks the nuts
She chops the cabbage
She pounds the steak
She punches the dough
She cuts the bread
She scalds the mild
She mashes the potatoes
She shakes the lettuce
She squeezes the lemon
And, slaps the supper on the table.
