Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Arsenic and Old Lace
 

 
Arsenic and a tart
peach brandy
decanted in cut fine
lead crystal.

For a silent murder,
oh so handy,
much less obtrusive
than a pistol.

Swirled in a snifter for
its bouquet,
greedily inhaled
with a smile.

This is definitely the
genteel way
to send the bugger
off in style.

Placed on a doily of
the finest lace
along with a plate
of ladyfingers.

One sip will give a
warm embrace
that enfolds him and
then lingers.

Sharing idle chat to
bide the time
‘til he stands to
propose a toast.

The mantle clock begins
to chime
signaling the creation
of a ghost.

Snifters clink in such
ceremonious grace
then he raises his
to waiting lips.

You carefully study his
unknowing face
while the sweet poison
takes its grips.

His eyes rolled up
toward the ceiling
while his life
slowly dissolved.

No mess to clean and
that’s appealing
as your problems
are resolved.

The corpse remains to
test your plan
what to do, tell us please
don’t spurn us?

You’ll find latent warmth
in this man
as he is stoked into
your furnace.

Diabolic yes, but the
deed is done
and your parlor shows
no lingering signs.

He’s just one dealt with
Mother’s son
that authorities shall
never find.
