    I just love the lines:
    Once more the maiden's eyelid flickers.
    She draws the pistol from her knickers. (Report) Reply

    Alas, when Red got back home,
    The tax man had left her a message on the phone,
    'It's time to pay for the income you didn't declare
    For the government wants its rightly share.'

    'Maybe we can negotiate the terms.' he said.
    'There's really nothing to dread.'
    Just bring the coats and case and all
    And your red riding hood, as i recall.

    So Red arrived (wearing a wire) at the scheduled time
    And just before the end of this rhyme.
    Turned state's witness against those agents
    Who blackmail poor innocents.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
