Poem: Mr. Sinister Smiles
 
Mr. Sinister smiles
At you Lady, and drools
 
And drips a bit from where
You'd guess, but would most fear.
 
He has made many plans:
Little trips for his hands.
 
And they all involve you.
Oh there's nothing to do
 
But wait for him. He's there
You know, and he's like air:
 
He's everywhere you'd go.
He's got something to show
 
Just you. You won't like it.
 
John Wood
