Carl Sandburg - Jack London and O. Henry

BOTH were jailbirds; no speechmakers at all; speaking best with one foot on a brass rail; a beer glass in the left hand and
the right hand employed for gestures.
  
And both were lights snuffed out … no warning … no lingering:
  
Who knew the hearts of these boozefighters?
