First Line: There on the littered streets she sits, and chats with
Last Line: Plucks vermin from its curls; and sells her oranges to me. Me.
Subject(s): Italy; Retail Trade; Italians; Stores; Shops; Shopkeepers


There on the littered streets she sits, and chats with passing friends,
While a deft neighbour combs her halr, piles high the sleek, black ends;
She holds her gushing nipple to the child upon her knee,
Plucks vermin from its curls; and sells her oranges to me. me.
