Myth of the Jalapeno Slug

Legend Has It
The Jalapeno Slug is a mythical creature that resides
In the Bagel Factory.
Bageleros are always chattering about how delicious it would be…
If such a creation existed.
Yesterday, to my surprise, someone told me that they ATE one!
Imagine that – EATING a Jalapeno Slug!?!
Seems like an awful close encounter with something that is only said to be real. 
I just can’t believe it.
Jalapeno Slugs don’t exist.
The Jala-Slug, drenched in the mystery of it\’s own reality,
Remains supernatural.
Like Bigfoot (who surely exists),
Believe at your own risk,
When the only evidence is eyewitness.
There’s just no PROOF that such a Jala-slug ever took SHAPE.*
Bakers cannot corroborate,
Leaving this story utterly incomplete. Not even the toaster is talking.
*This statement is humorous because of the double meaning. When a Shape Shifter loaves the dough into bagel form, that Bagelero places new borne bagel babes on peels to proof. \”Proofing\” a bagel means that we encourage it to grow or rise through the action of the yeast. As long as the Jala-slug never PROOFS itself to shape shifters, it has no effective way of manifesting as a reality in the bagel factory. So, there\’s just no PROOF of a Jala-slug.
If rumour has it, the Ja\’la’la-slug may have truly slithered
Cross the oven threshold to achieve immortality in the world of man.
But we can never really know,
Except in each man\’s own heart (belly) and soul.
But remember, there is a boy – a boy who believes. He was raised atop a poppy seed muffin – one of our own, here at the bagel factory (you may say he was born and BREAD here). Anyway, the boy has been here for years, and has dreamt of the Jalapeno Slug for as many years as he has been, here.
\”At last,\” he now claims, \’the dream is realized\’…
Is this boy just a muffin?
Bageleros may never know.
Whose to decide, if Ja’ tale should survive?
Seems resurrection is not A\’ PEELIN\’ for today\’s proof.
Of a Jala-slug Rebirthing,
Our muffin SON can only pray.
After that, Time will say.
When someone calls out, \”Jala – P\’s!\”
Always Jala-back with lotsa \’peno,
Cause every day\’s a Jala-day!
