A Poem

I've been watching Wings a lot and I found this poem particularly funny. Antonio's a cab driver on Nantucket. So he's "waiting for a fare" enjoy.

Antonio's entry in the Nantucket Tourism Board's booklet for local poets:

Waiting for a fare
Here comes one now
Oh, he looksa like he wants to go
some-a-place far
What? You just want directions
to the lighthouse?
It's right there
you stinking little tourist!
What are you--blind?!
Hey! You're gonna lose that finger pal!
Get in! I drive you
into the cold, dark ocean!
Waiting for a fare...
And come back soon

(P. S. Think Tony Shaloub with an Italian accent.)
 That's all for today.

-MaggieG, Evil goblin Overlady
