goodbye, cruel world

My life and death are a study in contrast. First of all, who would think such a small creature would fetch such a great price? Second, where once I swam freely, one among millions in the cool blue ocean, I meet my end with a few family members on a skewer, stuffed with jack cheese and jalepeƱo, wrapped in bacon and grilled over an open flame, only to be served on a sizzling hot platter with drawn butter.
