The word is out on the street
By Parson Thru
The mobile phone is the indispensable tool of the wheeler-dealer - permanently clutched to the right or left ear, depending on which way handed. Shoe-leather is abraded at a rate commensurate with the need to adapt and overcome. The free hand gesticulates to lend weight to the argument and enforce the message, sight-unseen. As summer approaches so the urge to influence intensifies. Sun brings him forth from the bar or the hidden back-room. The word is out on the street.
