	WINNIPEG

	By Kevork K. Kalayjian, Jr.


	You know where Winnipeg is don't you
	I was born there. I worked with my father
	On a farm, we raised cattle
	I had nine sisters. Come here,
	Let me tell you a story;
	One day we were killing cattle,
	With my father you know
	I was tying them tight with ropes
	To keep them still, you see?
	And my father told me, `I'm gonna 
	Kill the next one at the spot where 
	you look at the animal', and you know,
	I was looking at the animal right in the eye
	Guess how old I am?
	What? You say 55? Yeah!
	that's what everybody thinks,
	but I am actually ninety
	I speak French you know!
	I had a garage in Boston,
	you know Boston don't you
	It's a big town, yeah!
	I had a forty-car garage
	In Boston, yellow cabs you know,
	service and all, big business,
	but I was born on a farm 
	In Winnipeg,
	You know Winnipeg don't you.
