TRANSCRIPTION:

[Obscured] daffodils. He can't think of [obscured] ...on why except he's climbed into someone's garden and there's nothing else to do now he's here. So he picks all the daffodils because the bright sunshine makes him, but when he gets outside in the street again he can't think what he'd say to anyone who asked him why he's got them - so he gives them away to an old lady in a wheel chair and goes off whistling, hoping it wasn't her garden.
Jambo inks tattoos on his arm with a biro. Pirates and lovehearts and mermaids. A death's head skull and "MUM" - all writhing and dancing together.
Underneath he does his name. "JAMBO ACE OK". Jambo would like to be an artist - just so he could sign his name.
But he can't be bothered with paintings. Paintings take too long. So he just signs his name in all the places where they ought to be. On empty walls, on the back of bus shelters, on the sides of houses, on the stairs in tower blocks. "JAMBO ACE OK".
Jambo goes to church every Sunday. He's a very conscientious Christian. He wants to know how to be good to his neighbour and help old ladies across the road and how to turn the other cheek and how to get to heaven and how to get the lead off the roof.
