APED: "mad scientist's villanelle"

February 10th, 2009 (09:01 am)

My nerves are cracking underneath the strain.
My professors called me mad, you know.
I wish Igor would come back with the brain.

My creature! After all these years of pain.
Failure now would be a crushing blow.
My nerves are cracking underneath the strain.

I stitched the limbs. Each muscle, nerve, and vein.
The arteries through which new blood will flow.
I wish Igor would come back with the brain.

I will not fail. Not this time. Not again.
Established science I shall overthrow.
My nerves are cracking underneath the strain.

Is that a faint light through the windowpane?
Lit torches in the village far below.
I wish Igor would come back with the brain.

Lightning comes with thunder and the rain.
The peasants form a mob. I think they know.
My nerves are cracking underneath the strain.
I wish Igor would come back with the brain.

Nick is (about to be) well-fucked

Awww, this is beautiful. Poor, mad scientist.

It's hard work to be a mad scientist! You always have to watch out for the peasants!

Plus, Igor's always getting the brain belonging to Abby Normal.

You can't beat the classics, son!

You can with a stick!

(But then you will be thrown into the lake by a creature who thinks you are as pretty as a daisy.)

Ever heard of Schaffer the Darklord? This puts me in mind of his tribute to mad scientists. If you're interested, check it out here.

I have heard Schaffer the Darklord! I horrified some very upright and decent friends by playing them "Attack of the Clonefucker."

You just turned me from a tired, tired person at the end of a long day to a giggling, happy wee thing.

Many thanks!
