Ode to Ed Gein

August 25, 2011

*** Spot the instance of the double entendre in the obviously crass, double-meaning rhyme. I shot for a quadro entendre! (Granted, you’ll need to know something about necro-maniac Ed Gein) ***

Ed Gein
Wearing Blue Jeans
Walked with a head between his knees.

He said
It’s like a horse
His whiskers made his wild smile coarse.

He drooled
Moaned with pleasure
Striding with his severed treasure.

But then
In the moonlight
The head awoke and took a bite.

Ed screamed
Lost his testes
Chewed up, spit out and all messy.

Oh my,
Ed cried and bled
I’ve got a lady-part instead.

And pasted flat,
Ed glued her on a paper mat.

Hurt, but
Not in despair,
Ed was happy he had a spare.
