Playing Godawful

When this madman with sacrilege toyed,
Doing bad was an act he enjoyed
For God's power he'd thirst,
But by knowledge was cursed...
Such cadaverous quacks are destroyed.

Ernest Theisinger's Doctor Pretorius gets his in Bride of Frankenstein (James Whale, 1935). Title by Shadowplay-ing David Cairns.
