Stevie Smith (20 September 1902 – 7 March 1971 / Kingston upon Hull)
Bag-Snatching in Dublin
Walked so nicely
With footsteps so discreet
To see her pass
You'd never guess
She walked upon the street.
Down where the Liffey waters' turgid flood
Churns up to greet the ocean-driven mud,
A bruiser in fix
Murdered her for 6/6.
