When Petrol Prices Go Up

When petrol prices go up,
Everybody go pump at Shell,
But they spend 10 minutes queuing up,
Engine running and air con on as well.

The taxi driver in complaining,
His housewife also not happy,
My neighbour also cursing and swearing,
While driving his brand new camry.

Why the Gomen so greedy?'
Ask the lorry driver at the coffeshop,
'They go and reduce the subsidy,'
Said his friend who drives a SUV.

'Wahh, like that how can I tahan?!'
Said the boss who has 4 cars already,
'RM1.52 a litre is way too much,
Some more my wife wants another CRV.

Long time ago when I was in school,
I remember from my geography class.
Petrol is drilled from underground,
It’s all rotting dinosaurs, plants and grass.

But now the price is getting higher,
Making life more difficult for me.
While OPEC is getting richer and richer,
Tomorrow I’ll come to work by LRT.

  • Sigh, some more there's no change to the public transport. Rapid? You hardly see them, and when you do catch them, they are hardly, well, rapid.

    Mr. Badawi, help!! We are drowning here.
