Lon 1956 (Cleveland Ohio)

Pinch and Patty came by way of me and Bender O' Bender I did want to see. To be or not to be was the question of free and that's the way I came to me in the way I see. May sin and my sin was all that I could see but to be or not to be was not even there to see. My nym was Beanie and Beanie was sea and Cecil was his name and Saysil was sea. So be it as it may, May Day was me and my name was Hampy and Hampy was he. Guy won after bread and bread won after me so be it as it may, I be May D.C. . Go home Gombee I'm here'
