Rumour Pills

Licensed to kill, my dear [Stacy Alexander]

with toothpick, quill or hairnet [keith c sickbed]

Applied to cheek or ear [Grayman]

On the tip of an old bayonet [Apsley]

I slide within the shadows [Beefy]

your darkness so perverse [Richard Mustgrave]

That where'er a lad goes [Apsley]

You'll often find a nurse [Grayman]

Dogging his heels, my dear [Beefy]

A thermometer unsheathed [Barrymore's Ghost]

To plunge at once into his rear [Apsley]

I fear his last he's breathed [Grayman]
