Bates' Bate

By

Robert Price

(Note: This poem is a tribute to Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 slasher "PSYCHO")

The wild,

And wonderful,

Mary Crane.

Such a lovely lady,

But a bit daft in the brain.

She left her town with lots of money,

When her boss found out,

He wasn't a happy bunny.

But where is Mary now?

Pray tell?

Well,

She has gone to stay at the Bates Motel.

The owner there is a young shy fella,

Who brought her out of the rain with his trusty umbrella.

Now,

He fancies this woman,

She could perhaps be his lover?

But that will not happen,

If it's anything by mother.

"Norman! Norman!"

She shouts in a blunder,

Her voice is quite hoarse,

But louder than thunder.

"No woman will be staying tonight," she said.

Her words were all threatening,

This filled him with dread.

"For, if I find out you have given her a room,

Then I warn you Norman, she will be in for her doom!"

All of this anger filled Norman with fright,

So he went down to the office and turn out the light.

Meanwhile Mary went into cabin 1,

And went into the bathroom,

The shower she did run.

So,

That dreary dark night Mary went for a soak,

But,

Suddenly the curtains ripped open,

And there stood the bloke!

Norman Bates!

He was dressed head to toe in his mother's attire,

And the smile that he gave,

Was like that of a vampire.

So,

She screamed,

And she screamed,

She battled with strife,

Then,

Down,

Down,

Down,

Down,

Came the butcher's carving knife!

Then he went out the room,

Poor May was dead,

Then he transformed back to Norman,

And a tear he did shed.

His moher wasn't active,

She was as dead as a door nail,

So,

In that happening,

Old Norman did fail.

He said his mother was alive,

That little liar,

Now he's in hell,

Burning in the fire.
