My complex heart

When the gunshots come at 3am, please please
let the guards in the access hut not sleep.
Let the 'lectric fence be active and charged
when the cars of men in black are at large

Cos god knows that I been burgled before.

Let their two grand salary suffice, please please
to keep 'em honest when they on my beat.
Cos I can hear sirens, or are they car alarms
outside, where the siege of me's in the stars.

I built it strong and hard and high and well-nigh
impenetrable, but still.
You found a breach in the wall around my complex heart.
