Black and White and Red Death All Over
The third of my rooms-in-a-row
Is as pure as the new driven snow
Though it's fun to contrast
With the one that comes last,
I wouldn't just scoot to and fro.
All the chambers are vividly hued
Like a rainbow they'll lift any mood
This last one excluded
It's black and secluded
And most dames who go in leave unglued.
As they enter they're taken aback
Coming next is a panic attack
When they suddenly find
All the colors combined
Are as black as Lord Satan's own crack.
