The Merchant of Menace

Perusing the evening news
He fumes at the sneering reviews
This ham will enact
A vengeful last act
And it won't be the scen'ry he chews.

He's had it with hearing their boos,
Now he's come to the end of his fuse
His vengeance dramatic
Makes Vincent ecstatic
And a fearsome revenge play ensues.
