Attending to his henhouse chores

Collecting eggs from hens of every stripe

Temperatures so low he had visions

                                                                                                                              Being a word man 'gallimaufry ' appeared before him

Could it be a real word?

Or just the freezing of the mind.


You might say it was a freeze-dried word

A prophetic moment of discovery

Foretelling of a scrambled egg supper.
