Eve  of  the  Seance
GeoffreyGarrison & Mathew Thurber


Sir Arthur's Lament
‘Whatever happened to Baby Doyle?’
He ís been planted under the soil.
All I wanted was to see my son
Cut down by the Kaiser before life’d begun.

When it was done I was converted,
I saw how the ectoplasm spurted
Onto the photographic plate
And there I saw my little boy’s portrait

Or that’s what I believed at any rate.
The charges were not very high
For drawing his ghost out of the sky,
I have no reason to be suspicious.

What makes Houdini so vicious?
