CAPTAIN OF THE PUSH

17 JUNE 2011
As the night was falling slowly on the city, town and bush, From a slum in Jones’s Alley sloped the Captain of the Push; And he scowled towards the North, and he scowled towards the South, As he hooked his little finger in the corners of his mouth. Then his whistle, loud and shrill, woke the echoes of the ‘Rocks’, And a dozen ghouls came sloping round the corners of the blocks.
