    There is a very great deal of allusion to this:

    For McGough's immediate audience in Britain when his poem was written, 'Vespers' was probably so well known as to render accreditation unnecessary. Handy info for any student types that pop in here though? (Report) Reply

    Jolly and exquisite. Who doesnt like Batman and Robin? The poet has captured the flavour of the child's response to these two adorable comic heroes. Superb! (Report) Reply
