NaPoWriMo Day Eight: Proverbs

Today we were challenged to take a proverb or saying and somehow question it; put a new twist on its meaning. Here’s my selection of haiku. Try and guess what the originals were:

Why not cross the bridge?
Just take goats the long way round
Or go block the trolls.


Eggs in one basket
Shaken together will make
A splendid omelette.


So why has he stopped?
He who hesitates is lost
Or has no Sat Nav


An apple a day 
May keep the doctor away
But not the dentist


Yes, it is not gold
But it might be that winning
Cadbury’s Creme Egg
