To Moreau

Dear Doctor, your questionable work
Is shocking, distressing, berserk
You've doddered, insane
Into God's own domain
A debacle, at best, you big jerk.

David Cairns

Richard Arlen, and Charles Laughton as the sadistic Dr. Moreau in Island of Lost Souls (Erle C. Kenton, 1932). Continuing the Countdown to Halloween, a month-long celebration of creepy movies and creepier verse.

Great one!

I just watched this one, again, tonight. Fun old film!

Thanks, Joe! I agree--a good limerick and an entertaining movie.
