By night when others soundly slept
You must login to vote
And hath at once both ease and rest,
My waking eyes were open kept
To pinch from motor cars 'twas best.
I sought that which my soul did love
Like sat nav, bags and mobile phones,
Clothed all in black and both hands gloved
To burgle Escorts I was prone.
My hungry sack I filled with good (ies)
And bottled all my victims' tears,
But then two coppers grabbed my hood (ie)
And banished me to Court with cheers.
'What to this villain shall I give?'
The judge asked as he sentenced me,
And not one wanting to forgive
Cried out 'GAOL FOR ETERNITY !'
