Charlie at the cafe

Charlie at the bar

the most gullible boy alive meets

the foxiest girl in the world

Charlie so famous he’s 

escaped the funny pages

but will never escape

the humiliation of

ending up flat on his back

with a colossal thud

yet again

Charlie at the racetrack

Charlie at the strip club

Charlie drunk on lemonade

and bad psychiatry

It’s no wonder his dog

owns the Van Gogh
