Give My Regards To Broadmoor! (For Big Al - My Pal) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I was obsessed
with gratuitous sax

& senseless violins

due mostly to
a mIs-SpElt yut...youth

& aggravated dyslexia.

Oh I knew
(sure as cops is cops)

that I would come to a bad end
...very enjoyably.

Give my regards to
old Broadmoor!

Remember me to big Al
(if he’s still there) .

Give my regards to
old Broadmoor

&tell ‘em
you’ll never catch me

...there.

    If I remember correctly, from reading Gothic novels, Broadmoor is a prison, right?
    But I love the plam on the song as well...your head must buzz with all the songs you remember and love so well...
