Doorbell rings and tension grows
Out the door the runner goes.
Runs outside and checks the mail
Gets the letter, treats with care.
Goes back home and waits by door,
Time to travel yet some more.
Takes the mail far away
Gives it to another guy.
Gets some letters on the route
And hurries back to send these out.
