Dear CSir I write this note to you to tGell you of my plCight For Fat the time of wriCting it, IG'm not a pretty sight My bFody is all bClack and blue, my fFace a deathly grAmey And I wrCite this note to say why I am nGot at work toCday While woCrking on the fourteenth floor some brGicks I had to clCear But toFssing them down from sCuch a height wGas not a good idea The forFeman wasn't vCery pleased, he Fis an awkward Amsod And he saCid I had to cart them down the laGdders in me hCod Well cleCaring all these bricks by hand, it wGas so very sClow So I hoisFted up a baCrrel and seGcured a rope below But Fin me haste to dCo the job, I wFas too blind to Amsee That a baCrrel full of building bricks was heGavier than Cme And sCo when I untied the rope the baGrrel fell like lCead And cliFnging tightly Cto the rope, I staGrted up instead I shoFt up like a rCocket, and to Fmy dismay I fAmound That haClfway up I met the bloody baGrrel coming dCown Well the baCrrel broke me shoulder, as Gto the ground it sCped And wFhen I reached the Ctop I banged the puGlley with me head But I cFlung on tightly nuCmb with shock from tFhis almighty bAmlow While the baCrrel spilled out half its bricks some fourGteen floors belCow CWhen these bricks had fallen from the baGrrel to the flCoor I thFen outweighed the baCrrel and so staGrted down once more But I clFung on tightly to tChe rope me bFody racked with pAmain And haClfway down I met the bloody bGarrel once aCgain Now the foCrce of this collision halfway doGwn the office bloCck CaFused multiple abrCasions and a nasGty case of shock But I clFung on tightly to tChe rope as I fFell towards the groAmund And I laCnded on the broken bricks the baGrrel had scattered roCund. Now Cas I lay there on the ground I thoGught I'd passed the wCorst But the baFrrel hit the puClley wheel and thGen the bottom burst A shFower of bricks rained doCwn on me I dFidn't have a hAmope As I lCay there bleeding on the ground I let Ggo of the bloody ropeC The baCrrel now being heavier so staGrted down once mCore It laFnded right acrCoss me as I lGay there on the floor It bFroke three ribs and mCy left arm and FI can only sAmay I hCope you`ll understand why I am nGot at work tCoday
