Magpie #203 A Cello in Brooklyn

Musician in the Rain  Robert Doisneau

Mon dieu I hate this rain
I hate this rain always dripping
Always dripping on my neck
On my neck-what the heck?
What the heck.....hey fella!
Hey fella-gimme your umbrella! 
Your umbrella will keep me dry 
As I'm a slightly damp cella!
