Illo by Tim Riley
Part the Third
Would I bite you on the neck?Or bury you alive
In a basement no one checks?And would I have electrodes
To attach electric wires
When the thunder rumbles loudly
And lightning flashes fire?Or would I be a suave one
With a cultured laugh like so ÖAnd a mustache I could twirl
Round my finger donít you know?Would I be a devil sly
With my plans all figured out?To carry out like clockwork
While the people run and shout?
Or would I just collect taxes?
