Opening Segment"Hey, cats, I call this one Painted into a Coroner Blues. 'When I think of you, my heart goes flopsy. As I contemplate your sweet autopsy. Your skin is green and blue, whatever would I do without my find cadaver. The love in which I know I'll fall starts with the unkindest cut of all.' Thank you, thank you. They don't call me the creative writing corpse for nothing. Thank you. My next poem is a little ex-stair-imental number I've been working on. I hope you like it. It's about a real ghoul dude named Clyde, who's about to try a little die-ku of his own in a vile verse I call "Staired in Horror."
Closing Segment"Poor Clyde. I guess that's one 12-step program he could have done without. Still, you'll be happy to know kiddies, that our story has a happy ending. Clyde did manager, after a couple of years, to crawl a little way down the stairs where he waited for Lily while she grue-some. You know what they say, 'Age before booty!' My next poem features a rhyming scream I think you'll find interesting."
Audience member: "Hey, why don't you sit down?"
Crypt Keeper: "Excuse me, folks."

Crypt Keeper: "Now, that's beat poetry."
