Polyanna and the Starry-Eyed Dreamers "I know he's an axe murderer, never pays his friends back that he borrows money from, and has severe B.O., but AT HEART HE'S NICE PERSON, MOST PEOPLE ARE...."

Reminding me of a poem regarding a guitarist friend who is also a butcher (of frozen animals, not humans, as far as I know):

I gotta make a living
And must face the facts
It's either my meat cleaver
Or my axe

PS Remember the Beatles album cover that the record company pulled, with all the butchered dolls?
