The Obviously Mundane vs. the Darkly Sick Insane

A ditty in the Halloween spirit!

Many a debonair doctor takes his girlfriends out to eat.
Doctor Lechter invites them in and tries to eat their feet.

Raising a child is difficult and can take many tracks.
Lizzy Borden’s derailed parents took their forty whacks.

A playful, furry loving dog can pick one’s spirits up.
But “Son of Sam” killed victims on the orders of a pup.

Most would tell a friend in pain to take an aspirin pill.
Jeffery Dahmer treated friends with his electric drill.

A husband feeds a wife in bed to pleasure or appease her.
Baby Jane was served a rat so that her sis could tease her.

Winning a prize doll for a child might make a dad feel lucky.
But later he might curse the win if the prize is little Chucky!

Wooers hire violins to get their loves to diddle.
Nero got hot but from flames as his bow stroked his fiddle.

Many lovers wave good-byes from near the window casement.
John Wayne Gacy said bye-byes as he buried loves in his basement.

A person left of a talker might lean right so they can hear.
Van Gogh took a counter approach and sliced off his left ear.

It’s fun to star gaze all night long at Polaris and the “Big Dipper.”
Unless the one gazing right at you is a chap called Jack the Ripper!

There’s nothing like some weight work sweat to increase muscle power.
But red blood will make your gut wet if Norman Bates enters your shower.

A guy who writes a poem like this might be a lot of fun.
But if he gets a bit too close you should just turn and run.
