Invasion of the Toddler Snatcher

With no bride, this poor slob can't call booty
Yet inside he still throbs eyeing beauty
Why he'd kidnap this wain
Only id could explain
When he tried, one more mob did its duty.

Lon Chaney Jr reaches for child actor Janet Ann Gallow in The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton; 1942). Thanks to toddling David Cairns for today's title, and for adding a new word to our Limerick Lexicon: wain is Scottish for child or baby.
