A Street Corner

          I'm no knight in shining armor. Just a weather-beaten man in a crumpled overcoat on a street corner with only a grey idea of something you might as well go ahead and call Morality. Sure, i'm none too scrupulous about the things that might benefit my pocket, and i could do no more to inspire a bunch of young thugs to do good work than i could stand up and sing a solo in the church choir.
