Article excerpt

he pounds his wing on the ground

I'm a carrier pigeon he says

I'm a carrier pigeon he repeats louder

does he want to scare me or what

luckily I have a fresh roll in my bag

I'll bribe him if I have to

I fix my tie it's better to be polite

a glass of water orders the carrier pigeon

why yes of course

I don't want any trouble I've got a large family

a glass of water a bandage for my wing

a mirror a bottle of cognac orders the carrier pigeon

fuck him I've got a large family

this shitty pigeon to hell with him

a mirror a bottle of cognac

an apartment in the center of Warsaw orders the carrier pigeon

what a story what a story

why yes of course sir right away

a plastic products factory and a gold mine orders the carrier pigeon

holy shit what's going on here

why yes of course sir right away

I'm as everyone knows I'm generally speaking a somebody says the

carrier pigeon

so I run and jump and run

I carry baskets bags boxes cartons

withdraw money so much to do so much

changes exchanges phone calls conversations

why yes sir right away right away right away

coffee today coffee tomorrow entertainment tomorrow too

chocolate tangerines some figs and raisins

why yes sir right away now this and that now him and her

but I can't always make it on time I fall behind

I'm neglecting my family nothing but complications but I must be

quick

yes quick today silverware a glass of water a pound of coffee

and if anyone dares to insult my boss says anything winks or

whispers

I'll kick their ass so help me god right away right away

without him I'm a shadow a glass of water I'm coming I'm coming

if anyone dares to insult my boss
