SYNOPSIS: A middle-aged married couple, burdened with the increasing ill-health and irascibility of their "Poor Bibi," whom they once adored, make a decision to have him/her "put to sleep" by a veterinarian. When, repulsed by the request, the veterinarian refuses to perform the "simple procedure," the husband and wife are forced to kill Poor Bibi themselves in a frenzied, brutal manner: "For we soon forget what we do, in the human desperation of doing it." The ordinarily "gentle and civilized" couple then confront us, the audience: "And you, you damned hypocrites, what will you do with yours?" -- Joyce Carol Oates
