Airships are bright and gilt,
Their brass never corroding
And I always like Airships best
When they are exploding.
Bowler hats are dapper;
What chapeau is jauntier?
And if you’re murdered horribly
They make you just a little hauntier.
Cthulhu oft I’ll try to summon
Iä! Iä! Iä!
Been too long since I’ve felt your pseudopods,
O eldritch cara mia.
Detectives are dogged and determined
And they find all the sharpest clues
I annoy ’em with ceiling footprints
From my anti-gravity shoes.
E is for Eldritch; isn’t it always?
For stumbling through murky rooms
and navigating hidden hallways.
Yes, E is for Eldritch, and it’s a bit early
If I drive you mad ‘fore I finish the alphabet,
It’ll make my publisher surly.
