Surprise Ending

A lamb-chop once asked me [Apsley]

"Why have you unflasked me?" [Yoxi]

Flustered by this question, [Apsley]

I halted digestion [dkb]

And looked to my sister for advice: [Apsley]

Her words were inspiring: [dkb]

"When did you last ask me [Apsley]

When Dad was retiring?" [dkb]

I halted ingestion [Apsley]

And said that I'd just asked her twice [fester]
