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 Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
