A Christmas Carol For Midtown Tourists

With a little old driver so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be a pedicab.
More rapid than pigeons, his coursers they came,
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name:

Now Così! Now Sbarro! Now, Food Exchange and Food Merchants!
On, M&M Store! On, Olive Garden! On, Qdoba!
On, Chipotle and Café Bistro!
Now Café Metro! Now Metro Café! Now, Europa and Pax!
To the top of the Rock! Let's go watch the ball!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!
