Goodbat Nightman

by
 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.
