a poem by Mather Schneider

YOU HEAR

about cabbies
fighting
over a 5 dollar
fare.

You hear
about cabbies
getting killed by
wackos.

You hear
about cabbies
getting blowjobs
in alleys.

But cabbies are
notorious
liars

as well as
ex cons
druggies
thugs
and plain old
dumb asses.

You can't help
what you hear.

It's hard to listen
and to say
nothing
but sometimes
that is
what is needed
most.
