Sit back and enjoy the ride

Welcome to the land of more than plenty of buses – big ones, powerful ones, empty ones.

Welcome to the land of more than plenty of buses – big ones, powerful ones, empty ones.

While a lot of economies are scrambling for cover in a flood of dollar debt, not so Abbotsford.

If you’re a newcomer to our beautiful city in the country, relax, enjoy. We have money to spare, the coffers are overflowing, loonies, toonies, millions.

No need to buy a car because we run scores of nearly empty buses, all over town.

In fact, they travel by my house every 20 minutes sometimes during the day, but don’t fret, there’s lots of room, with only three or four riders enjoying their own limousine service.

Yup, they fill our pristine air with black clouds and a gutty roar of power. Isn’t it wonderful, they’re so efficient – empty a lot of the day and night, so they are lighter.

Who said smaller buses? Heck we’ve got happy taxpayers and subsidies which just keep the dollars rolling in.

Hold on, here comes my own ride. Wow, more room than usual.

I guess no one expects accountability, why should I?

Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
