Apples and Pears

London used to have this old streetlanguage, for the maffia to talk to eachothers without the police understanding them. They would rhyme on what they wanted the say: So under the stairs became= apples pears.
ANd they had a whole language like that. Really creative, and to me, also very charming.
Crookes rhyming a whole new language together.. they couldn't have been that bad...
