The Good, Bad, and Ugly Samaritan

Once, a man was the personification of down and dirty He lived the life of a hellion well into his thirties He drank all day and he drank all night He lied, cheated, and stole while extinguishing his light This man was as ugly as hell and always had a sneer The worst of ne'erdowells was actually full of fear He went through a constant cycle of failing and running For he couldn't face the truth that his flailing was stunning On what felt like the worst day of his existence He received the most potent and lovely assistance He was finally told "no" and forced to hit the bottom He finally realized everything had caught up with him
