I don't know much about magic. However, I know a little bit about Edgar Allan Poe, perhaps not enough to make him proud, but given the restraints under which I write today (ill health; being away from home and dog) I've done my best, Edgar.
edgar allan poe, y’know,
wrote The Raven, never mo’
but for a very real fear-gusher
he wrote The Fall of the House of Usher.
I saw it once on a movie screen
scariest thing I’d ever yet seen
(and I a most susceptible teen)
it magically made my blue eyes green
so I have sworn off ever more
movies classified as horror
Poe, by the way, was the first American to try to make a living by writing, but not before giving other careers a try. He suffered under restraints far worse than Golden-Retriever-withdrawal, I might add.
