Howie by Dr. Arturo Marroquin / Howie

The scent of him waddling along, close to me
Right after his rolie polie belly was filled

Never failed to fill me with such absolute glee
Right up until the time that Howie got killed.

Death by too much greasy (yet yummie for the tummy) buffet gourmand food:

He went down for a little rest; in a couple of weeks he was found, though not in the nude.

Rest in Peace, my little hedgehog of a pal,
May you go with God and NOT with Baal!
