Saturnian Cinema

Read "Saturnian Cinema" at The Eldritch Dark: 

This is an another poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) that was first published in one of Roy Squires' letterpress editions from 1976.  It's a minor attempt at humorous verse, most notable for the use of a strict ABAB rhyme scheme, a basic poetic structure that CAS rarely used in his mature poems.  Although it doesn't follow the formal structure of a limerick, "Saturnian Cinema" certainly has a spiritual connection to those bawdy songs!
