Any Lust Requests?

Miss Dietrich is peddling her bod
A streetwalking, bed-hopping broad
Then when hired as a spy
She's a liar, quite sly
But gets beat by the dread firing squad.

David Cairns                 

Marlene Dietrich is given a last cigarette in Dishonored (Josef von Sternberg; 1931). Barry Norton is the young Lieutenant.

You remind us that classics are waiting.
You break up a bad day, it's true;
Your limericks feed
a visual need
For gems worth viewing anew!

Your comment's signed only "Anonymous"
(Your nom with "unknown" is synonymous)
Quite lavish the praise
Is salve for malaise
A balm that this hombre don't wanna miss.
