Dan Drakes Valentines Acrostic

It’s me Dan Drake I’m back again
With words of rhyme to bring villains pain
The local rag the Villaville Bugle has asked me to write
A Valentines message to give you criminals a fright

So in an acrostic I will spell it out
To leave all you vermin without any doubt
For I’m hot on your trail by day and by night
And Valentines just another day right

V is for villains I will bring to book
A is for always, behind yourself look
L is for lesson, which you soon will learn
E is for excessive, force I have to burn
N is for nabbing you with your hand in the till
T is for trigger that i shoot at will
I is for incarceration, some years behind bars
N is for noticing you in stolen cars
E is for evaluating each little crime
S is for sweeping the street free of crime

So now I have warned you I hope it won’t fail
To save you villainous scoundrels from going to jail
As for me I’m always honest and frank
With the Bugles large cheque, I’ll be off to the bank

So sorry that Dan has raised his ugly head again but sometimes he needs a voice and it seems I am his Vessel
