Beware the Red Caps

image: Capri23auto

Just you be on your guard
Don’t let your eyes be fooled and starred
Mind their every toss and shard
They’ll git you when you least expect it
Hold you up, turn you around
Rummage through your shiny weskit*
You wouldn’t want to risk it.

*weskit = waistcoat

Vicious they are
Everything of beauty they’ll mar
You try to run but you can’t run far
Listen now and listen hard
I remember how I blahed
The day those Red Caps tarred
My mother’s old kale yard
