Over Easy

Heart! Fortitude! And courage, girls!
Your mettle is your merit.
Break eggs to make an omelet, girls.
Hold women up who dare it.
See how Antigone defies the king!
"Ballsy!" the girls declare it.

Omelets, girls! The metaphor is eggs!
"Ballsy" isn't eggy.
It's not hard-boiled, deviled, or up.
It isn't even noggy.
And "ballsy" isn't lady-like!
It's testy, trite, and sleazy.
Antigone can't be "ballsy," girls.
She must be "ovarysy."
