Lost Verses to 'Oh My Darling, Clementine'

Dancing pretty, through the meadow,
It was really quite sublime.
Didn't know it was a minefield
Long-abandoned, Clementine.

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Thou art lost and gone forever.
Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

Dusted off a can of carrots
Hidden back in the pantry.
Should've checked the expiration
Dated May of Eighty-Three.


On an impulse we decided
To visit the city zoo.
But you jumped the barricade,
And tried to box the kangaroo.


Sleepless nights within the lab
Playing God with DNA.
Crossed a line man was not meant to.
Monster-hybrids destroyed L.A.



  1. Didn't know you had forgotten
    Not to touch my ol' death ray.
    There came a crack, ominous soundtrack,
    I've run out of things to say.


  2. okay I completely lost it at the last verse
