Bat to the Bone
Long of tooth, he's a drooling invader
Ever youthful, yet ghoulish night-shader
From your jugular vein
He will suckle and drain
And then--streuth!--he flies home using radar.
The Sorrows of Satan (D. W. Griffith, 1926). Limerick Lexicon: 1. streuth. Exclamation of shock. Australian slang. "You mean you stole 1 loaf of bread and now you are being shipped to Australia? Streuth!"
