twas’ the King himself who left

Heartbreak Hotel, to die face down in a pile of

his own

vomit

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door

 

twas’ Lenny whose ha-ha’s did stop the night he

filled his veins up to the brim, naked, alone &

40 years of age

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door

 

twas’ the King of Lizards whose heart failed & left

him plop down in Paris,

but we still don’t know what did him in

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door

 

twas’ Orville, the legend of popcorn, who got in his

jacuzzi, where one might say the water was too hot or

too cold, because after his heart failed, he slunk down &

drowned,

having never crunched on his luscious buttery treat again

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door

 

twas’ Judy who sought the other side of the rainbow,

by popping downers in the Summer of 69’,

overdosed & dead in the bathroom of her new London home,

leaving her Mickey alone to wonder where the bluebirds

fly

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door

 

twas’ Dr. Thorkel himself, who after shrinking them all,

got all dolled up in Hollywood at home,

naked as the day he was born,

with his eyes blindfolded, mouth gagged,

hands cuffed &

covered in sexual scrawlings

that had been carried out in ruby red lipstick…

found with a noose round his neck,

he autoerotically used that bathroom for the last time

 

for the reaper need not hesitate at the bathroom door.
