Chopping Blockhead

Passing by a beheading he'll stop
Doesn't shy from the dread, fatal chop
As the head's disconnected
Gogol's steady, collected
Though his eyeballs look ready to pop.

In Mad Love ( Karl Freund; 1935), Peter Lorre plays Dr. Gogol, a transplant surgeon who attends executions to acquire used parts.
