Twas the night before Halloween, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even the louse.
The arrest warrants were hung by the mail slot with care,
In hopes that the Emergency Task Force would soon be there.
The lawyers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of search warrants danced in their heads.
Mama in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down after a rather LARGE nightcap.
When out on the lawn, arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window, and in came a flash,
Blew open the window, and made the glass smash.
Police lights flashing cross new fallen snow,
Gave the lustre of mid-day to a new bag of blow.
When what to my wandering eyes should appear,
But my own police chief...not bringing me beer.
His little loud lapdog, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment, it must be that dick.
More vapid than Douggie, the curses they came,
And he gestured, and shouted, and called them by name...
"Now Jonesie, now Blair buddy, now Mark and Sue-Ann!
On, subways, on buses, on taxpayers and the man"
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall!
Go away, go away so I can save you all!"
