Lewis Powell is Coming For You

Leading up to the holidays last year I posted three Christmas carols that I had rewritten to be Lincoln assassination themed. You can read them here, here, and here. Tonight, as many children are going to sleep and dreaming of a man in a red suit who will soon enter their house, I present one more carol about a different, less jolly man who entered a house on April 14th, 1865.

Lewis Powell is Coming For You
As sung to, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”

You better watch out.
You better not cry.
You better not pout.
I’m telling you why.
Lewis Powell is coming for you.

He’s made up his rounds,
He’s checked up on you.
He’s found all about,
Your injury, Sew.
Lewis Powell is coming for you.

He’ll wait ‘til you are sleeping.
He’ll say he has some meds.
He’ll follow Bell right up your stairs,
Then bash Fred in the head.

You better watch out.
You better not cry.
You better not pout.
I’m telling you why.
Lewis Powell is coming for you.

Then Lew will draw a dagger,
He’ll slash and hit your brace.
So you’ll survive another day,
With a scar upon your face.

So, you better watch out.
You better not cry.
You better not pout.
I’m telling you why.
Lewis Powell is coming for you!

On a serious note, thank you for your continual support and friendship. I hope all of your Christmases are merry and bright and that you have a blessed holiday season.

Sincerely,

Dave Taylor
