The Motorbike Taxi by Laura Marie Clark




Zip here

Zip there

Pick up speed

Slam your breaks

There’s always a path

Through the traffic


Xe om xe om xe om xe om

Xe om xe om xe om xe om




Turn here

Turn there

Don’t indicate

No time for that

So hug the driver

And don’t look back


Xe om xe om xe om xe om

Xe om xe om xe om xe om


Xe om driver rules the road

Forges a path with his bike

Xe om driver has no fear

Gives you the ride of your life


Xe om xe om xe om xe om

Xe om xe om xe om xe om


Xe om driver does not falter

Knows his way to anywhere

Xe om driver’s bold and reckless

Swiftly moves without a care


Xe om driver’s price is heavy

For those who do not know

Xe om rides should be cheap

Wherever you wish to go
