Nevermore - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

that poe fellow made much
of the raven of which he wrote a bunch
turns out he and nevermore the first
were frequent visitors quenching thirst

in a tavern in gotham city
where the barmaid took no pity
on these two who were despoilers of the grounds
drinking carrying on and making rude sounds

seems the lady we ll call her such
of them she d had too much
katy was her name as history records
with a history of dising wayward bards

saw them a coming up the walk
making sounds how that crow could talk
knew soon the bar they d be in
cursing pinching fouling drinkin

a pry bar she took in hand and jammed
it twixt the door s two handles securely placed
locked them out in the cold and wet
edgar allen poe and his pet

the pry bar secured nevermore s place in fame
it s called a crow bar by name
and the maid we remember for
quote katy bar the door

archy2 the cockroach
a bit of archeomythlogy
according to marquis and mathrow
