I got a letter from some kids at Metella School in Toongabbie, Australia.

A crabby cabbie
From Old Toongabbie
Took me for a ride.
He was weird and flabby,
Drove strange and madly,
I thought that I had died!
“To the school!” I cried
To his brain, quite fried
On cigaretts and beer.
“To Metella School,”
“You crazy fool,”
“My map says it is near!”
But sad to say,
At the end of the day,
The school was never found.
That crabby cabbie
From Old Toongabbie,
He really let me down.
