“Complete nuisance,” we say
“Blaring through the streets
Demanding an extra ten rupees
Speeding, speeding, only speeding!”

“When it comes to lights – clueless!”
“That meter itself is useless”
“God forbid you go in a dress”
“Better stay at home, I guess”

We curse them, argue and digress
With a strangely pleasurable distress

But when we can’t go afoot
Or our engines go kaput
You have to somewhat agree –
Those terrorising three wheels
Get us from A to B.
