Caught on Camera--Villanelle Variation

by butterflyzrfree

The intruders who come in the night,
Practice jumping fences in the park,
the cameras have infrared light.

Schoolgirls smoking take flight,
to them it is only a lark,
but for cameras with infrared light.

Black clothes and clownmasks cause fright.
Prepare evil plans, disembark
The intruders who practice at night.

Schoolkids sneak through fence--it's all right!
Security on break! they remark
(but for cameras with infrared light)

Costumes ready, buy guns for the fight.
"Superman"-leaders name-'call him Clark',
These intruders have practiced at night.

Kids smoking, but need no flashlight
Though schoolmorn winters are dark.
Spot intruders who come in this night.

Screams, fireworks! Stay in gunsight!
Unshaking, all bullets hit mark,
Broke the cameras, no infrared light,
the intruders, who came in the night.
