a gun he was (with a drooping eye)

leslie
was a spiv
they said

sharp
and mean
and threatening

a very nasty
little man

handy with a gun
(the law could never
make a charge
stick fast)

but
he loved his girls
with
a dangerous edge

and they loved
their
little man

ferociously

with loyalty

even though
he was so bad

even though
he dragged them
in

he was a gun
with a squizzy eye

he loved
to dance
