    well now THIS really reminds me of a song!

    “deep inside the BPL
    is a living place call hell!
    Where puppets have it out
    in a primordial evil bout.”

    Nice poem…the puppets, and everything in the display are really GENIUS…I say this as a distant relative and total fan of WAD…

    I sometimes wish the display at the BPL could be a traveling exhibit. Say, at the Cooper Hewitt…I wish more people could see these marionettes in person. Hopefully, some day.
