    Dear Sir,

    I write this note to you to tell you of my plight
    For at the time of writing I am not a pretty sight
    My body is all black and blue, my face a deathly gray
    And I write this note to say why Murphy's not at work today.

    Whilst working on the fourteenth floor,some bricks I had to clear
    To throw them down from such a height was not a good idea
    The foreman wasn't very pleased, the bloody awkward sod
    He said I had to cart them down the ladders in my hod.

    Now clearing all these bricks by hand, it was so very slow
    So I hoisted up a barrel and secured the rope below
    But in my haste to do the job, I was too blind to see
    That a barrel full of building bricks was heavier than me.

    And so when I untied the rope, the barrel fell like lead
    And clinging tightly to the rope I started up instead
    I shot up like a rocket till to my dismay I found
    That half way up I met the bloody barrel coming down.

    Well the barrel broke my shoulder, as to the ground it sped
    And when I reached the top I banged the pulley with my head
    I clung on tightly, numb with shock, from this almighty blow
    And the barrel spilled out half the bricks, fourteen floors below.

    Now when these bricks had fallen from the barrel to the floor
    I then outweighed the barrel and so started down once more
    Still clinging tightly to the rope, my body racked with pain
    When half way down, I met the bloody barrel once again.

    The force of this collision, half way up the office block
    Caused multiple abrasions and a nasty state of shock
    Still clinging tightly to the rope I fell towards the ground
    And I landed on the broken bricks the barrel scattered round.

    I lay there groaning on the ground I thought I'd passed the worst
    But the barrel hit the pulley wheel, and then the bottom burst
    A shower of bricks rained down on me, I hadn't got a hope
    As I lay there bleeding on the ground, I let go the bloody rope.

    The barrel then being heavier then started down once more
    And landed right across me as I lay upon the floor
    It broke three ribs, and my left arm, and I can only say
    That I hope you'll understand why Murphy's not at work today.
