THE TAXI CHARITY FOR MILITARY VETERANS
It was well worth being shot at to join this happy band,
The taxi driver’s charity, the finest in the land.
It’s for military veterans who’ve come back from the wars,
They’d been fighting overseas to keep them from our shores.
Now some of these veterans are getting old and frail,
But with their berets and their medals they still can tell their tale.
They are taken to old battlefields to remember former friends,
There they pause and reflect on how suddenly life ends.
With rollators, Zimmer frames and walking sticks they go,
A taxi driver’s guiding hand to regulate the flow.
So, here’s to the taxi drivers and all their helpers too,
It’s almost a tradition, and it’s all thanks to you.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE.
