A single rose
adorned the table
while I breakfasted
on your daughter

which
proves regrettably
that I am
just a beast

Forgive me
please send
her sisters
by the next coach

– Gail Carson Levine from Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It: False Apology Poems

Imagine the Beast from Beauty and the Beast burping with a full stomach as he leans on his precious rose. Hee hee.
