Goodbat, Nightman

Goodbat, Nightman

by Roger McGough

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

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.
