I am not a bum, I'm a jerk.. I once had wealth.. Power.. And the love of a beautiful woman.. Now I only have 2 things.. My friends.. And........ Uh.. My thermos. Huh? My story? Okay! It was never easy for me.. I was born a poor black child.. I remember the days sitting on the porch, with my family.. Singin' and dancing.. Down in Mississippi..
