During his performance of "RJ and his 52 Assistants", RJ quotes a couple of poems or writings related to gambling and cards. One deals with the "booze and bowens". (Spelling?) There's also a couple of others. He does mention their origins, does anyone have access to the titles? Better yet do you know where I could find the actual writings?
Thanks

Villon's translation of William Ernest Henley's "Booze and the Blowens" (Wine & Women) can be found at:

It's amazing what search engines can do...

Thanks a lot Eric. I tried a search, but having the wrong word didn't help. Thought at best I might find the name.
