Generic Taxi Driver

The amplitude of his suffocating thickness
The unbearable drama of crude dense-ness
Pigheaded brat
Roadhogging rat
First he cuts right in front of me
Screeched to a halt right ahead of me
Then proceeds to show me his middle finger
My attempt to move to the right lane
Provokes his insanity to do the same
Who else but the generic taxi driver

Next time, drive close and bite off the offending generic middle finger of the rat-brat.

This is not the kind to get too close to. Most of them carry guns and will not hesitate to shoot.
I have learnt that sometimes it is better to put tail betwwen legs and run for dear life.

Oh, yes, I forgot about the guns. Yes, by all means, run for your dear life. He who 'fights' and runs away ...

Oh but if he do you a, do him so eh? I promise. Man no go vex.

It takes a healthy dose of cowardice to live to see another day sometimes.
That is my theory of survival.

posekyere said...

Yes Ms. Cleland! Certainly.
That is, if I survive at all.
The probability of escape in such situations is closely linked to the number of "I-am-sorry"s one utters to the offending hoodlum.

I think you described accurately the majority of the taxi drivers in Ghana!! Though I've met a few calm ones...

Thanks for the lovely comment over at Holli's Ramblings by the way!

posekyere said...

You are so welcome, Holli.
As for the taxi drivers, aint they the same across Africa?

posekyere said...
