To all who have been disturbed in their sleep by youths search for security

On great black machines

that bat flit at night

these modern Draculas,

swooping vampires,

make lightning raids

on pensioners milk bottles.

Then flushed with victory

rev into daring oblivion,

clutching their spoils of war

while poor pussy wonders



missing morning milk.
