“Your house really is an invitation to burglars.” My neighbours told me.
“This really is a high crime area.” They said.
“You really should get an alarm system fitted.” They said.
“You really shouldn't leave your window ajar at night.” They said.
“You really ought to get a stronger back door, and heavier bolts.” They said.
But we like things just the way they are.
The master roams the house at night, silent as a shadow.
The master likes burglars, he likes burglars very much.
He only spits out the nails and teeth.
