Marilyn Monroe At Halloween

It was Halloween 1954
And Carson Cody Albion
Knocked at the door

Myend was what the sign on the door said

Whoever owned the house called Yourend had fled
So Albion had come knocking knocking on Myend’s door
Private eye he was, no raven saying “Nevermore”.

It was no Pallas Athena that opened the door
But Marilyn Monroe in witch’s apparel without any gore

A lovely witch she was with candles four
And a lovely dress J. Edgar Hoover would die for

Said Marilyn, “Hast thou come knocking at my entrance door?”
Said Albion, “Thou hast knockers that defy gravity’s floor.”
Said Marilyn, “Dost thou love me even though I be poor?”
“I do,” said Albion, “I bought this ring at the jewellery store.”

The curtain and the veil in the temple tore
Baskerville hound lost its footing in the moor
Only PH Unbalanced remained a colossal bore
But the rest of the cosmos rejoiced encore

What sorcery is this that has done this for?
Love’s beating heart yet beats some more
A tale to be told like in days of yore
Albion entered the house as cats and dogs and rain doth pour.

    As a devout Jewish Rastafarian
    BhikkhunΔ«, Uncle Ernie doesn’t
    believe in Halloween πŸŽƒ but have
    a good and scary 😱 one anyway, Christopher πŸ‘»

      I suppose Uncle Ernie is known as the Jewish Rastafarian Bhikkhuni who can’t fit into a bikini πŸ‘™.

    Sadly, Uncle Ernie does fits into
    his latest Christian Dior bikinis.
    It’s amazing what they can do
    with spandex these day! πŸ™ˆ

      Well, that’s an image I won’t be able to get out of my mind the rest of the day. 😱
