Kill Thrill

A cave man who kills in a rage
This psycho belongs in a cage
But certain gals dig
a primitive pig
and have since Neanderthal age

All images from Born to Kill (Robert Wise, 1947), starring Lawrence Tierney (as the aptly named Sam Wild), Isabel Jewel, Claire Trevor, and Elisha Cook Jr. Read an appreciation of Kill at Sunset Gun as well as several other films by Robert Wise at Octopus Cinema.

The tenor in voice of L. Tierney
says gruffly to all you'd best fear me
Short-tempered and rough
I don't take no guff
So, hurry up, barkeep and BEER ME!

surly hack said...

At men he would snap, growl and sneer
And seeing a lady, he'd leer
When out on the street
the folks that he'd meet
would pull all their children quite near

His voice from the depths of deep hell
all gravel and bottomless well
no nonsense or guile
just brimstone and bile
emitting a menacing spell
