REALLY AWFUL FLAMING LOGIC IN TRAIN
Commuters in Umlazi get
Put under lots of strains,
And to express displeasure set
Alight offending trains.
A bunch of this lot’s breth’ren stole
Some cable from the track
Which sends the signals up the pole
Until it gets put back.
The manual system that is used,
When current there is none,
Seems rather to have been abused -
For practice there was none.
And thus two trains met nose to nose,
With something of a crunch:
Collision which quite clearly shows
Some brains were out to lunch.
The blockages upon the line
Caused other trains to run
Extremely late; commuters whine
That waiting is no fun.
And so, they threw some rocks at trains -
Quite logical to do;
Much better than if one complains,
And exercises, too!
This didn’t seem to do the trick,
So next they did aspire
To show, of waiting, they were sick,
By setting trains on fire.
In Africa, if horse won’t go
Because it has a fetter,
You simply kill it with one blow
To get it going better.
