The Last Straw

That’s the last straw.
No, not the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Or some ordinary straw, like the straw from a broom
The last straw is a bendy straw.
And I need it for my drink.
It would have been nice to have had a silly straw, because those are really fun, but someone used the last silly straw.
When the last silly straw broke, they reached for the last bendy straw.
“NO!” I shouted. “THIS IS THE LAST STRAW! AND IT IS MINE!”
And I smacked their hand.
They whimpered, and scuttled off to buy some more straws.
