The Monk
by Nevada Kerr

A fallen prior, cutthroat friar
Erects a fat fairy church
The Unicorn Temple boasts a tree of flags
And a custodian named Lurch
A rat squealing bird
Flying to and from his perch

A hobgoblin ghoul
Outrivalling the wicked witch
The bad dad from Carlsbad
Carries a greased crucifix
This pit bull troll takes his nightly stroll
On the prowl for gigolo swish

At a chapel party
In jet black drag
He works the room to a pitch
With acrylic nails and piggish tales
He burns to scratch his itch
Collecting boys from the Indian school
To break, suture, and stitch
