Death of a Taxi Driver

Another Toot in Car Man
Left the rank last night
Never again a fare
He died in fright
Thanks to the greed
Of some boys
False need
I sit stunned today
Numb once again
Angry at their madness
And propagation of pain
Was it worth
The money they seek
Or his death a mistake
I drove that cab last week
5 February 1995

Artist's Description

I wrote this the day a taxi driver was murdered driving a cab I had driven the week before. I ended up in a Psychiatric hospital a few weeks later. I am still sad about him..
I still have a Transit Austority Concession card receipt for the week before with the cab number on it. I must have forgotten to hand it in with the takings
