Crass materialism.

Crass materialism.

A bus has its owner

He hires a poor driver.

A public service vehicle

It’s supposed to be.


At the end of the day

It brings remittance.

In the form of cash

From collected bus fare.


To ensure efficiency

Owner sets a target earning for driver.


One day the bus is involved

In so tragic an accident.

The owner is informed

Via a phone call.


The first question that

The owner actually asks.

Is whether his dear bus

Yes, his bus is still in shape.

He is not concern about

Neither driver nor passengers.
