Once upon a midnight dreary, shopping online, I grew weary,
Over all the boring products that I was being shown.
Useless crap ad infinitum, but suddenly I saw an item
Saw a product that I knew I simply had to own!
A little doll, so cute and, Oh!, It looked like Edgar Allen Poe
The spitting image of that author, captured to a "T"
His eyes intense and slightly craven, on his shoulder sat a raven
I knew at once, without a doubt, this was the doll for me.
But suddenly, quite unexpected, my Visa card was not accepted
Not accepted like it's been so many times before.
Called the bank and put on hold. But in an hour I was told.
"You're overdrawn, there's nothing more."
Quoth the banker, "nothing more."
A plush little Edgar Allan Poe. Comes with a little raven on shoulder.
Approx. 12" tall when standing.
