The new word butcher

Trust me said rubicund Ruben,
Trussed in navy-white apron, cleaver at the ready,
Ill prepare you a nice bit of verbage.

Cholerically boned and rolled brisket,
an eyeballing sausage,
or a flexitarian kebab?

Chined and scored bonus genius,
smoked authorhood,
or upcycled thighs?

But I recommend the barbecued bloatware!
