From the Gherkin London
"who can see" by Colin Lowley

Can anybody see me right up here?
Cleaning windows with a glass of beer,
Who is to know if you're not here,
only me with happy cheer!

Each day I clean the "Gherkin" up and down,
I never spill my glass as I go around and around,
sometimes I get dizzy then I crash into Paul,
that's my neighbor, you won't see him fall.

He has a fear of heights as he cries in his nest,
I do feel sorry as I mop up all the rest,
He gives me half his money, that's not in jest,
who's to know? Only them behind the desks!

I am taking a chance they won't say anything,
but I can keep a secret as I see many things,
the secretary on her back or cash in a sack,
as I circle all around and rub it up and down.

Author Notes
What a job, a famous on its own building in the city London, Nickname the GHERKIN .
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
