Death be Not Shroud

By torch bearing mobs he was fried
He blew himself up with his bride
His ends were unequaled
but Frankenstein sequeled
and therefore, he'd not really died

Each screenwriter tried to devise
a clever and monstrous demise
But viewers were certain
at each closing curtain
the lumbering lug never dies

Lon Chaney, Jr. in
Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1942)
