"Bye Bye Beef" by Bill Schott

After the laughter had subsided,
Beef felt a little strange.
His chest began hurting as if he'd had
a fart in the heart.

At a mere two-foot eleven inches,
the minute galoot's grimacing and distress
were hidden by the height
of the bar counter.

He realized that he had been
poisoned with a fink drink
provided by his furry jury
of righteous bearded peers.

The smell of refuse
and worse
became the harbinger
of the garbage truck
and, later, the landfill.

The jury double bagged his
failing frame
and marked the outside
in bold letters:

Beef had sought relief,
with the chief of police,
to mitigate charges
of being a thief.

He flipped on his friends
which led
to now being dead.
Just another (Bleep!)
thrown on the heap.
