This is a moral nature, pertaining to the later part of the twentieth century. Proving the rule that "No good deed goes unpunished."Chaffinch Charlie is a gangster retired to the Cost A Lot, where he has a bar, in which he runs girls for profit. Charlie has over a long period, in and out of prison, develop certain a pragmatism, realizing that profit and power are the only weapons in today's society. He has an N.V.Q. in maiming and brutality and works under the auspices of the Common Market. When his top girl runs off with a wealthy man and marries him, he is, to say the least, upset. He was fond of her, for she was, as he would say, helping his onions settle after he did a bit of maiming for a friend.Through a chance burglary he finds out where she lives and decides to kidnap her son for large amounts of money.Charlie one night has a dream, that he died and went to a Mince Heaven, the dream changed and he watched from the astral plane; his bones being taken from his body; then noticed that an architect had turned his arse into a bungalow. A family of four moved in. Naturally he prayed for forgiveness and would mend his ways and free the kidnapped victim. When he woke in the morning and after going to the toilet, checking the pan, he knew that it was only a dream. He decided revenge on his previous employee, the lady that had run off to get married.Naturally the conclusion to this story, is not good triumphing over evil, but dear old capitalism winning? But who wins?
