The Creature from the Black Linguine
an old movie I once did see.
Oh, wait, that’s not the name
just kinda sorta sounds the same.
It came to me while I was showering,
a water-logged event not uncommon.
Thinking of water and creepy creatures
swimming about in 50’s features.
Italian lizard people eating black linguine,
an epic moment among restaurant scenes.
Images of lizard lips and pasta sauce
are filling my head till I’ve had enough.
Okay, yes, I’m not serious yet,
but I’m stopping now ‘cause the paper’s wet…
