His muscled feet uncramped by shoe or sock, A leather belt about his middle girt, His densely growing hair a kinky shock. A ribald joke, a gusty laugh, a grin. He heaves the bales and crates with body rhyme, Rejoicing when Fate flings an extra dime; He knows where it will buy a gulp of gin. Through life he loiters, hand in hand with Sin, Haunted by visions of another clime: The jungle village, and the tom-tom's din. E. C. L.
