From the Wall Street Journal: “Little-known fact: You can earn $45 an hour distributing fliers on the streets of Manhattan.”
On the streets of Manhattan the fliers are handed
by actors and models who clearly are stranded;
their artistic tempers demand a perfection
that makes them for this job the perfect selection.
They may try some Hamlet or dance to a salsa;
perhaps they will carve puppets made out of balsa.
Passing out fliers might seem a tough job,
when you’re in Manhattan with such a rude mob.
But artists and models do not know of fear
(not when it comes to their burgers and beer).
Would I take a flier from one of these types
who likely are playing so loud on bagpipes?
Perhaps if they’re pretty, and give me a smile.
(Heck, for a kiss I would take the whole pile!)
