Die Charred

For vengeance it fervently yearns
But an end in a furnace it earns
Though the heat is appalling
Out the creature comes crawling
To mend from the third-degree burns.

Hilary Cummins (Peter Lorre) watches as the severed hand crawls from the fire in The Beast With Five Fingers (Robert Florey; 1946).
