Haiku Review: Little Shop of Horrors

Seymour Krelborn works
for Mushnik in his plant shop.
Where? Down on Skid Row.

He pines for Audrey
but she's with Orin, who's a
dentist (Oh, Mama!)

Audrey II arrives
and brings success and fame to
Seymour - for a price.

Turns out Audrey II
needs blood to survive, and it's
always Suppertime.

Orin beats Audrey
"The guy sure looks like plant food
to me," sings Seymour.

After he's killed, the
cops suspect foul play. Audrey
is upset, but then...

Suddenly Seymour
is standing beside her with
sweet understanding

The duo plan to
marry and live Somewhere Tthat's
Green. ...but not too green.

Audrey II has plans
too. Like world domination!
That's One Bad Mother!

Seymour and the plant
battle to the death. Seymour
wins, thanks to a wire.

Yes, I know there was
an alternate ending. I
like this one better.
