Mythos Bar and Grill

Baron Poppers
Lost his choppers
At Mythos Bar and Grill
Four sharecroppers
Ordered grasshoppers
And chased them down with swill
Mrs. Lauper
Quite the shopper
Requested a discount for a thrill
Mr. Whopper
Pinched her copper
And said he guessed he will
The waitress prospers
Recovering the Baron’s choppers
From a paint-chipped window sill
At Mythos Bar and Grill.


Author of Devil's Edge, The Future Queen, and J.J. Houston: Murder on Moon Street. I live in Rhode Island with the love of my life, two menopausal tomato plants, and several purse-snatching poltergeists. I love to read. I'm an archaeology buff, I poke around in science and physics, philosophy and art, and I enjoy gardening. My favorite movie is Fried Green Tomatoes, I listen to movie soundtracks while I write. Like Garfield, I will absolutely chase my own shadow for a pan of lasagna.
