W: W:2 W:A copper approached me and asked me my name, W:I gave him the answer with a bicycle chain. W: W:3 W:The judge said, “Sit down, boy, and dry up your tears, W:You’re going to Borstal for forty-five years.” W: W:4 W:My mother was crying, my sister was too; W:My old man was laughing, and so were the screws. W: W:5 W:There were bars on the windows, and bars on the doors, W:And, just to be awkward, there were bars on the floors. W: W:6 W:I counted the moonbeams, I counted the stars, W:I counted ten thousand borstal bars. W: W:7 W:“Come home and behave now,” my Old Man said; W:So I found an old stocking, and filled it with lead. % % % % % % % % % %]
