Freddy The Red Brained Mi-Go

You remember Deep Ones and Dark Young and Shantaks and Shoggoths,
Nightgaunts and Polyps and Fungi from Yuggoth.
But do you recall the most loathsome beastie of all?

Freddy the Red Brained Mi-Go
Had a really slimy brain,
And if you ever saw it, you would scream and go insane.

All of the other Mi-Go
Laughed at him and made remarks.
They never let poor Freddy whisper with them in the dark.

Then one foggy Solstice eve
(Hastur)* came to say,
"Freddy with your brain so bright, won't you scare some folks tonight?"

The how the Mi-Go loved him
As they buzzed about the place.
"Freddy the Red Brained Mi-Go, you'll live out in darkest space."

* Not to be sung aloud.
