From "Mes Trois Povres Orphelins"

By François Villon trans. Jean Calais.

[...] Actually I wouldn't mind if they learned
a few manners, even if you have to beat
on them a little, and wore sharp clothes
and good posture, nodding
to folks on the street saying
"Hi there how're you doing,"
so that people would say
"Gee those are really far-out kids."


Crooks can be as bourgeois in their desires for their children as any other realtor.

"Negroes can be as square as whites."
