Prometheus Unsound

Doc Frankenstein went to great pains
to prove after death life remains
To follow his thesis
stitched body from pieces
and then all he needed was brains

The doctor now dared to play god
giving life with a lightning charged rod
But plans went awry
when bad brain supply
created a lumbering clod

To greatness the doc had aspired
but down in the muck he was mired
The monster he made
did not make the grade
and then, in a windmill, expired

Welcome to a Frankenstein Fortnight of fright, where we
chronologically crawl through the castle canon to Halloween.
We're just one small part of the Countdown to Halloween
that's running all over the place throughout October. Thanks
to Backthrow and Norm for their help behind the scenes.

ster daddy of them all, Frankenstein (James Whale, 1931).
