The Meatloaf Serenade

With faltering steps Alonso reached the summit [snood]

With trembling hands he planted there his flag [Beefy]

And far below, the world of men [snood]

Toiled on, while far above their ken [Beefy]

The brave Alonso saw his ice axe plummet [snood]

Then he tripped and hurtled headlong off that crag [Dassn't Say]

The piton held! The rope stopped his descent [Beefy]

With effort great he lowered to a ledge [snood]

When, whoosh! A frigid gust sent him falling again. [Dassn't Say]

This time, not even Beefy could save him [Anon.]

Before his eyes flashed the time he'd spent [baoloa]

Sucking up to Beefy--just in case. And for what?... [Kansas Sam]
