Starlight Effigy in Oxford

It's a bit late at night, don't you think,
For you to be winking hard?
Am sure no one's looking anymore,
Apart from the motley crew assembled post-haste
To cheer fireworks displays
Still not going off
From 1605.

So, go to bed.
Or, better still, shoot yourself!
We'll never notice your fall on Guy Fawkes' night...
Or, is it Diwali? Or, both?
Who cares?
Not me, at 12 am
In 2010.
