Whenever there's a newspaper story about an execution,
the story describes the inmate's last meal.
A poor fool in Arkansas,
not mentally competent to stand trial,
requests fried chicken.

Tony said the worst thing about juvie was the Tater Tots.
Mark said that in LA County jail, they served Salisbury Steak.

Maybe if I were requesting my last meal, I'd ask for stolen fruit.
Apricots, apples, plums, persimmons, and pomegranates
swiped from the neighbors' trees.
