The Man In Blue - Poem by John Paul Wilson

Watch out for the man in blue -
He'll only try to diddle you!
Demophiles of all creed and hue,
Know this to be the end of you!
He'll sooner spook than spare
(his hat and coat are blue) !

This man won't wait for you to draw
Your money from your bank account
Your booby snares won't keep him out
Or do him down - he's in this town!
Come straight back here and lock the door!
We thought we had him cornered but
He's dangerous when cornered so
We had to let him go….

The man-in-blue lurks in thin air
He's waiting and he's skulking there!
If you see him on your street
Then this is what to do (repeat) :
Just come straight here and lock the door -
Don't let him in! Beware, beware!

Watch out for that man in blue
He knows the name you answer to,
He knows the time, he knows the day,
He knows the way, he knows the why,
He knows the feelings that you have,
He knows the meanings that you crave -
The answers, and the questions too;
He knows the mischief that you do,
And if you told the truth or lied:
He knows the secrets that you hide….

I know, because I've seen him go
In rain or snow from door to door
I know he knows your pain, your fear...
Lock up your trinkets and prepare -
The blue man comes: he's here, he's here!

Watch out for that man in blue
He's only come to trouble you
Demophiles of all creed and hue
Know this to be the end of you -
He'll sooner spook than spare
His hat and coat are blue…
