•SHAKE AND BAKE TAXI• a drive by poem by Flyrod
He lives in a tunnel under the city
Where all that surrounds him is damp and gritty
Fresh fares are waiting up on the streets
A night to remember for all who he meets
With a combination of fear and speed
This psycho taxi driver gets all that he needs
He speaks in a tongue from some foreign nation
Minutes away from a moving violation
You wait at the corner but there’s no cab in sight
Then he breaks through the darkness of night
You have no choice because you’re running late
No time to be choosy you don’t hesitate
The windows are dark and you can’t see inside
You’re on the verge of one hell of a ride
You tell the driver, “Let’s go to the airport”
The driver nodes “yes” and lets out a snort
When he steps on the gas rubber starts burning
Your heart start to race and you stomach is churning
You grab for the seat belt, you see that it’s broken
It’s getting real hot and the engine is smokin’
It smell like a toilet and the seat feels wet
You’re doomed on a ride that you’ll never forget
He slams on the brakes when the light turns red
You hit the divider with the front of your head
The driver is nuts and the cab starts to swerve
You‘re getting whiplash and loosing your nerve
You scream at the driver, “Hey let me Out!”
He clinches his fist and waves it about
He sideswipes a truck and lets out a swear
You beg him for mercy but he doesn’t care
You sweat like a pig and it’s hotter than hell
This old tinder box is your jail cell
He stops at the airport, the door opens wide
You kiss the ground knowing you could have died
The fare is fifty bucks and he want a big tip
He’s waving a gun so don’t give him no lip
There by the curb he spots his next fare
A sucker just waiting to be in his lair
The Shake and Bake Taxi’s got a new inmate
A terrified sole in an old yellow crate.
