Honest Al's - Google Streetview

got a junkyard and a junkyard
dog an alley and alleycats
got sufficient military firepower
for this neighborhood because

Honest is one thing but
no rule you gotta be stupid too

to deal with too like banks
and trucks and insurance

They will leave a pile of dead coins in its place.
