If I Were Lizzie Borden’s Neighbor

If I were Lizzie Borden’s neighbor…
I think it would  have been hard.
So I surely would have courted her..
Possibly even scored with her…
but never never tortured her…
Because she would have chopped me into little pieces..

And it would have rested upon the why’s and when’s –
(that I should have been her neighbor -)
for if I had encountered the bloody den –
axe in the fire while Lizzie says “More!”…
Then it might have been like a one night stand thing..

But before the grisly act –
which Liz so merrily savored –
I would have made her a porn star…
and a whole lot of money –
being Lizzie Borden’s neighbor…
