By a mesmerist held at death's door,
he's both dead and alive, either/or
But as bystanders choke
this eye-sore awoke,
and like gelatin fell on the floor

Basil Rathbone, Debra Paget and Vincent Price in "The Case of M. Valdemar" in Tales of Terror (Roger Corman, 1962). Title by headmaster David Cairns.
