Felix is out on the avenue,
looking for a client.  

A guy in a car drives by.  
The guy likes what he sees.  

The guy picks Felix up,
takes Felix home with him.  

The guy treats Felix wrong  
Misuses him bad.

Felix hates it,
he hates that guy.  

When you’re only twelve,
and you’re hungry,

you’ve got to take it.

Such a tough kid
I bet he never showed anyone his tears

or scars.

Midnitesun,

Yes, you have that right.  Sometimes it’s just not worthwhile to wake-up in the morning.

Aziza,

No he doesn’t, not ever.  There’s not much money in belly-aching.

Tomtoo,

Yes, that’s true, and the beat goes on.

Secondhanddreampoet,

This is very true.  For many, the “dream” remains a nightmare.

Bobby

Felix`s experiences take a nasty turn at times.
