A secret recipe
passed down through the centuries.
A whole
millennia to make
this egg.

Delicacy.
An egg full of magic indeed.
Stored in an oaken tree
to ferment like good wine.

Many seek this grail of eggs.
This pinnacle of perfection.
Druids must keep
the egg
from evil
so they say.

Now found in China.
Fermentation is questioned.
You taste this holy egg.
Only to reply...

"A century of bad taste."
