FRANKENSTEIN






This is the Lord of Creation speaking.
Now, you think that Baron von Frankenstein
Was just a man, and that he was seeking
To ape - such blasphemy - what is divine.
You think that his attempting to create,
As I did in that abandoned garden,
Create a man was wrong, was tempting fate,
That for such a crime there is no pardon.
As usual you've got the whole thing wrong.
Yes, even Mary Shelley failed to see,
Though it was I inspired her all along,
Poor Frankenstein is obviously Me.
So now you see what also must be true,
Alas: that Frankenstein's monster is you.
