Speed

 

  Claw's always greedy, and finishes his dope really fast.

He's always acting like he's got withdrawels, I don't trust

him. He's always coming 'round to bludge some of 

my dope, but I tell him to piss off!

  I know Claw would do anything for a shot, even act like a

queer, but I ain't having none of that, I tell him to go and do

another shop.

  I know he sneaks under the house, and searches for my

stash of dope there. I know he searches in all Mr Shadow's

tunnels, but he'll never find it there. He'll never find my

collection of bottles, phials, tablets, tinctures, crystals, and

powders, I've hidden it way up underneath the far end of the

house, underneath the flat where Auntie Mary lives. I know 

she'll scream if she sees him, or hears him searching about.

  Claw is in my bedroom raving at the top of his voice.

We've been shooting Speed for days, but I've had a 

shot of Morph to come down. Claw's still shooting speed,

and raving, " I reckon Maya was right about Mr Shadow

all those years ago. I reckon he is a fucking Communist.

I reckon he wants to help stage a revolution to destroy my

family's business. It's tough going as it is with all the 

workers being out of work, compaining that they can't work

properly because of cancer. I reckon they're probably

Communists as well, trying to destroy my family's business,

always wanting more money to get paid for not working.

What am I going to do for money then, if they destroy my

family's business? Yeh I reckon Maya was right about Mr

Shadow being a fucking Communist, you know like at 

school some of those smart jerks are always talking about

Communism, saying how it rejects private enterprise and

takes all your money of you. I reckon that those smart jerks

are right. Yeh, I think Mr Shadow's a fucking Communist....
