“Now he lives at home with his mother. He can’t get a job no place and fathers of kids all up and down the Avenue say, “Stay away from that Terry Young, he was a bad one. You hang out with him, and you’ll come to no good.” Terry’s punch is punched out, and now when even kids run away from him on the block, he don’t care much what happens.
