The Gashlycrumb Tinies- A Very Gorey Alphabet Book:

“Each night Father fills me with dread
When he sits on the foot of my bed;
I’d not mind that he speaks
In gibbers and squeaks,
But for seventeen years he’s been dead.”
― Edward GoreyAmphigorey

“There was a young woman named Fleager
Who was terribly, terribly eager
To be all the rage
On the tragedy stage,
Though her talents were pitifully meagre.”
― Edward GoreyAmphigorey

“There was a young woman whose stammer
Was atrocious, and so was her grammar,
But they were not improved
When her husband was moved
To knock out her teeth with a hammer.”
― Edward GoreyAmphigorey

“A lady both callous and brash
Met a man with a vast black moustache;
She cried, ‘Shave it, O do!
And I’ll put it with glue
On my hat as a sort of panache.”
― Edward GoreyAmphigorey

A delightfully dark vintage alphabet book from mid-century illustrator Edward Gorey, the Tim Burton of his day.
