meet leslie (we’re in the papers)

Squizzy Taylor from The Sun News Pictorial 22/09/1922

hello

meet leslie

it is true
he is smallish man
of only five
feet two

so what

and
it’s true
they say
that he is bad
in
all kinds of ways

so what

so what
why
should I care

he dresses well
and
buys me things
and . . .

and
he takes me
dancing

sometimes
it is
a dangerous life
but
the coppers
don’t know
(anything)

and the coppers
can’t touch
(anything)

we’re in
the papers
almost
every day

people know him . . .

and they
know me

he calls me
baby baby

that’s
his name
for me

meet
leslie
