Chapter Sixteen

The Road Of Life

The road of life, just like any other road, is marked by milestones, incidents, people and things you recall to mind so vividly. I remember walking down Kilburn High Road a few years ago, it was about 11 o’clock at night, the bars were getting out. There was laughing voices everywhere the bright neon lights of the fast food bars added a kind of holiday aspect. Standing by a lamp post hoaking through the contents of the litter bin affixed to the post was a tall badly dressed man, He lifted out a discarded Kentucky Chicken box and took from it the half eaten food that someone had thrown into the bin.
