The Whale Had the Valid Excuse

by Hal Sirowitz

IT was okay for the whale
to vomit, mother said.
It had Jonah in its belly.
Jonah couldn't be released
any other way. But
it's not okay to stick
a finger down your throat,
despite how lousy you're
feeling. You have the best
hamburger meat – sirloin –
in your stomach that money
can buy. Chucking it is
disrespectful to the cow.
