299. bandits at one o'clock.

they descend in formation

strafing the streets

& pedestrianized precincts

with crotchets & quavers

 

armed with accordions

and mandolins

and three-day stubble

they lay down suppressing fire 

 

and we return the favour

with shrapnel and paper

for we are the Lords

of these Sceptred Isles

masters of all we survey.
