Like The Boy Who Cried Wolf

My cousin was always broke.
He'd get free meals at restaurants by pretending to choke.
He did it again and again.
But people eventually stopped believing him and his life came to an end.
One day he ordered dinner and he really did choke.
But everybody thought he was faking and he croaked.
As they buried him, I cried.
But sadly it was his own fault that he died.
