Getting Down to Really Awful Brass Taxies


The minibus taxis that everyone sees

Get listed in various categories.


Taxius asyetticus undentedicum


You transport your children to school, sport and play,

And end up quite stuffed at the end of the day.

I drive, therefore I am.


The taxi-collector creates such a ruction

You lose all ability for reproduction.


While an aircraft that taxies will stay on the ground,

Minibuses that taxi all fly, it is found.


Dangerous driving

Panic at-taxi:

To travel in one, or to be somewhere close,

Of panic will offer a generous dose.


Will stop unexpectedly anywhere,  except at stop streets or traffic lights

    You have covered the subject of taxis thoroughly and succinctly.


  3. Sympathy to taxi-drivers (otherwise known as parents and grandparents) everywhere. I have several of those t-shirts, but now no longer drive.


  4. I have developed a whole new appreciation for taxis since moving to Ecuador!


You have the right to remain silent - but please don't!
