I Came Here By Taxi


I came here by taxi, sir, and someone must pay the fare.
I am sorry ma'am I have no money to spare.
But I came here by taxi, sir, and someone must pay the fare!
Look I don't know you and so I really don't care!
But I came here by taxi, SIR and SOMEONE must pay the fare! !
I know why don't you find SOMEONE who does care.
But I came here by taxi SIR and SOMEONE MUST PAY THE FARE! ! !
LOOK LADY, get back in the taxi and drive away from here.
Funny, that's what the other five guys said before I came here.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
