“Thom’s Redemption (and Demise)” by Richard O’Brien & Richard F. Yates

thoms redemption (and demise)

There were two things Thom considered fun:
a game of bowling and a witty pun.
The former was an exciting sport,
but some haters said the latter made for a lame retort.

The moment of his life came when he combined the two,
during Triangle Lanes’ bunny-pin tourney hullabaloo.
His remaining 7-10 pins caused silence and stares,
until Thom said, “Guess I’m splitting hares!”

(Epilogue: Thom had his pun framed and mounted in his studio apartment. It was found when neighbors smelled an odor and Thom’s body was discovered with a suicide note that read, “I can’t wait any longer for the McRib to come back. Please donate my pun to Smith’s Onion Museum – Smith is a good guy and I love Walla-Walla Sweets. Word to your mother.”)
