In this trio of E.A. Poe stories
Our hero's walled up by P. Lorre
But as poor Vincent molders
The cat on his shoulder's
A feline memento meow-ori.

Stuck fast to the wall like a moose
You're bricked up alive with a puss
Your intramural activity
Has nothing to give kitty
You'd both be much happier loose.
