I work with many and have driven countless people who have extremely different thoughts on the world recently, and it seems as though these thoughts are changing by the day...
What are yours ?
I don't know what "change" is happening except the little left in my pocket, but I do feel as if we are at a pivotal moment in our world where a simple "Yes you can" will not do. Too many lives lost on our soil and abroad. I want impact.
North Korea..China..South Korea..
All those countries exist within all 5 boroughs of NYC. All of them ride in my taxi.
Staten Island..Brooklyn...Queens..The Bronx...and Manhattan.
We've got Iranians passing off cabs to Iraqis splitting shifts.
We've got the Van Cortlandt St Irish standing
right next to Englishmen talking baseball.
Nobody... wasting nobody....now that is a miracle.
Can you dig it ?
I am no President..I am no Dictator..
I am no Cyrus from the New York Gang movie the Warriors whom I paraphrased..
I am only a taxi driver looking for the answers
to why a teenager is killed by a sniper...
Why American teenagers are coming home to a life of prosthetic fittings?
Why all these bailouts have not helped the ones who need it the most ?..
Why good people are being shit on everyday ? ..And more important..
When will it stop?
Can you dig it ? CAN YOU DIG IT !??!
I know I don't fucking dig it.
King out ...Peace.
