In youth, his hair was Fire Engine Red.
A bully teased..'''Ha! Thar's Tomato Head! ''
Ego rot spurred psychotic tendencies.
Secretly, ogling girls in their panties.
This Peeping Tom...A Lunatic indeed!
In later life lurking in waste high weeds.
To sneak a peek at women, unaware.
Then, daringly thru their window, he'd stare.
Past a tower, near an evergreen hedge,
He climbed a ladder to a window ledge.
Thru open glass, he gazed, hitting''Pay Dirt! ''
Eyeing a lady, nude and unalert.
Arms toppled on legs, she lay on the floor.
'''A pervert like me, couldn't ask for more! '''
Her nudity caused his pulse rate to soar.
Balanced high up...on Rung # 44.
Downward he fell...(thump!) ...hitting the ground.
Up-righted by cops, just standing around.
'''Oh, how clumsy of me! ...I'll be OK.
Thank you, Gents! Now, I'm on my way! '''
'''Not so fast! ''' said a voice, cool and calm.
'''You could be a thief or a...Peeping Tom!
In jail, you'll sit, till I investigate,
Why you were up on that ladder, so late.'''
