Goodbat Nightman

Goodbat Nightman

God bless all policemen
And fighters of crime,
May thieves go to jail
For a very long time.

They’ve had a hard day
Helping clean up the town,
Now they hang from the mantelpiece
Both upside down.

A glass of warm blood
And then straight up the stairs,
Batman and Robin
Are saying their prayers.

* * *

They’ve locked all the doors
And they’ve put out the bat,
Put on their batjamas
(They like doing that)

They’ve filled their batwater-bottles
Made their batbeds,
With two springy battresses
For sleepy batheads.

They’re closing red eyes
And they’re counting black sheep,
Batman and Robin
Are falling asleep.
