    Kenyon labors in his lab, he worries about spies
    Believes it’s Nineteen Forty-Four, someone’s been spreading lies.
    A beaker filled with chemicals, yet another failed compound
    Absence of explosion means progress slow but sound.
    Annie’s gathered up the eggs, industrious with her chores
    Summoned forth by Axel, a foul villain she abhors.
    He owns the local paper, a fetid rag of propaganda
    Distortions and mendacity to service his agenda.
    The locals are bamboozled by Axel’s news empire
    Believe they’re getting the straight dope, while Axel doth conspire
    To fill them up with nonsense: Belinda on the radio
    Odd the way they listen and nod, transfixed upon the show.
    Axel again is adamant: The Professor must find a way
    Beckons Annie to report on what she’s seen this day.
    Annie grows frustrated; she’s no fan of Belinda
    Deplores the schemes of Axel and his treacherous agenda.

    YOWZA! This suspense is something else. People controlled by radio. Next we’ll have Bela perpetrating “Murder By Television!”

    Well, nothing much new today, unfortunately. Just confirming what we all thought, that Axel owns the paper and is interested in Prof. Kenyon.

    And that “Belinda” is some form of broadcast mind control.

    Pequod77,

    Another great poem. Clever and descriptive.

    Looks like the effects of “Belinda” are wearing off on Annie who hasn’t been listeningl
    -
    One wonders what Professor Kenyon is working on that has Axel’s interests peaked?

    Two other characters will be visiting in one week! I invite you to check out their preparations for their historic crossover! Lum and Abner

    So, new character today: Leopold. I said there could be more characters in this story, but this one seems like he might not be important. Axel didn’t want Leopold to hear his conversation with Annie.

    It seems that Axel hasn’t asked Annie about Kenyon till now, so he must have been talking to someone else on that phone when we first saw Axel. Axel is very insistent on everyone listening to Belinda on the radio, so it does seem like he’s behind it.

    @Donnie Pitchford

    Would Mike be so obvious that the show is a thinly veiled version of “Radio’s Orphan Annie”?

    Axel is nasty, isn’t he? But does a yet more arch arch-villain pull his strings? How long can Annie avoid the Belinda mind control without it being noticed? Is Professor Kenyon really “Professor Kenyon”?

    @Sisyphos

    Axel Nasti, as I call him, has delusions of grandeur. Being his own Hitler or Stalin or some combination of the two with his own stamp on it.

    Interesting Axel asked about the prof but made no mention of Tracy…

    I don’t think Axel, knows that Tracy is a threat. He may not even know that Tracy is there.
