Rue Pall

Mad doctors in film are perverse
These psychos are sadists or worse
When medical peers
reject them with jeers
to vengeance they aren't averse

They say Dr. M's a real slime,
That his medical quirks are a crime.
The scowl and the sniff ...
But sez I, What's the diff?
His "abuse" I just call "a good time."

That's "they scowl and they sniff," dammit!

Are we meant to suppose that this rape
Is the work of a trained circus ape?
And that acting as pimp,
For an oversexed chimp,
Is a Hungarian swathed in a cape?

Bravo, gentlemen. Rue Morgue is more than a little twisted, isn't it?

D Cairns said...

The man in the cape is Lugosi
Through fog-shrouded Paris he'll mosey
In this black & white chiller
He trains a gorilla
To sidle up close and get cosy.

Yep, pretty twisted.
