Please sir, may we have another portion?
Taken from the book Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens where Oliver (typical 9 year old child slave) asks his master for another bowl of gruel by saying, “Please, sir. I want some more.”
Rewritten here as “Please sir, may we have another portion?”
The “master” here being the powers that be, the system, the man, the police. You know what it is.
