I Blame the Cheeseburger

I had a large dinner at quarter past seven,
It rendered me too full to sit.
So I laid on the hammock to stare up at heaven,
Thought I would rest for a bit.
It was a peaceful two minutes, supine outside,
But the little stringies beneath my bum,
Silently screaming, surrendered to my backside,
And submissively snapped, one-by-one.

*Based on a true story that occurred a mere few hours before the posting of this rendition.

    Ah, submissively,
    They oft go unwillingly,
    This is a haiku.
