The Gashlycrumb Tinies
Edward Gorey
Perennially beloved by those of morbid humor, this ABC in rhyme and scratchy pen-and-ink tells of the tragic and various ends of a crew of wan, hapless kiddies. "E is for Ernest who choked on a peach / F is for Fanny sucked dry by a leech." The moral, ambiguous though it may be, is that you can't be too careful because it doesn't matter whether you're careful or not.
