Big Bertha Thing Serpico
Serpico was an honest cop in New York, that was all he ever
wanted. As he lay, in his hospital bed, recovering from being shot
in the face, all he could bear to watch on TV was Sesame Street.
At one time or another, he had upset every cop on the force,
except one. Now, he even had mayor John Lindsay, dancing in
attendance. He still thought, it was worth it.
Now he lives in Switzerland, on a disability pension.
There is this incredible sense of deja vu, even down to the
walking stick. Most days he feels fine, even if occasionally
he could sleep for a week.
