The Lousy Life Of Tomaszek
by Christopher T. Dabrowski
Translated from Polish by Magda Woźniak
The Creator attached the head of Tomaszek to his body and bedecked it with an absurd cap.
Well the head and body when there are no legs? But the Creator thought about it – he attached them.
When they were sitting him down, Tomaszek felt as a passive puppet.
He resided in stillness watching all this confusion – as always.
A building of social uselessness was built. Everything was inside
but co-one could use it. Tomaszek became an inhabitant of an empty
shell. Anyway, they will soon pull it down. They will destroy him also
– the Creator has no mercy.
A sadist will pull off his legs. He will tear off his head. And then will revive it, attaching it to another body.
He will give him a new name…
It is hard to be a man of Lego.
