This lad in dirty clothes came up to me and said ‘change please’. Well, I think I’m a nice enough fella, relatively successful and hard working, so I said to the guy: ‘Why should I change? By the looks of things, it’s you that needs to change. Look at you! You’re a holy show. A Holy bloody Show! I mean, take a bath for a start why don’t you? Bill Cullen didn’t get where he is today. . .’
The lad just walked away. He just walked off before I was even finished talking to him. Bit rude I thought so I went home and started a thread on politics.ie about how the homeless should be sterilised.
I can still see him now, in my mind’s eye, on the road, wandering up and down: ‘change please, change please, please, please, change, change, change please, please, change, please, please change, PLEASE CHANGE!’
