Known as 'Chew the Monkey'
An elderly man leans on a walking stick and holds out his hand to passersby.

The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Chew the Monkey

"Chew the monkey" they call him
for his constant chatter.
Whatever may befall him
he'll needlessly natter.
Let some fairground install him,
performing his patter.
"Chew the monkey" they call him.
He's mad as a hatter.
