High Lang-xiety

by Backthrow
Crime Bureau




Please pity child-murderer, "M"
From madness his actions all stem
As played by Pete Lorre
We hear his sad story
While underworld seeks to condemn


M is Fritz Lang's seminal silent crime film.

Small girls should decline gift balloons
From serial child-killing loons
Soon marked with an "M"
The man who slew them
Is tried by a court of mad goons

I dunno about M as Lang's seminal crime film - what about Dr Mabuse?

You'll have to ask Backthrow about that. I like them both, as well as Langs American films.
