The Ballad of Sonny Sombrerowearer

Sonny Sombrerowearer lives in a shack in the weeds by the tracks and makes his living swiping the pennies children have laid to be flattened by trains whose passengers get off just long enough to drop cards in a box for an authentic postmark but today they're delayed as workmen scrape his remains from between the wheels as children hunt happily for their change.
