Father Joseph pocketed his flick, job done. They'd stitch that poor schmuck up in St Christopher's, but he'd bear that cheek-scar forever, letting everybody know he was a snitch. Nobody cares for a snitch. Even Jesus don't love a snitch.
There'd be infestations of filth in the hood tonight, then it'd go quiet as laundry.
Father Joseph headed for the dive under Mercy's and bought himself whiskey and a whore with the cop's silver pieces.
Someone had to take the rap for the telling the cops. And that scar would snitch loud and tell everybody who that somebody was.

Hard-boiled! They're scraping the barrel for priests these days it seems. 'Thou shalt not kill. (but it's OK if you cut 'em up a bit)' :-(

The Good Lord helps those who help themselves. Not sure if that's in the Bible or not, but I guess that's what the good Father would say :) Thanks Neville.

At least he isn't a pedophile! Really interesting read, Drew. I'm trying to catch up so I'm not commenting on everything but I am enjoying everything.
