Petrol

Petrol

Despite filling up
we’re continually bereft
as we’re serial victims
of scooter fuel theft

As tourist on scooters
we appear to be ripe
for overnight de-cantering
by way of a pipe

Then down the road
about two hundred metre
they sell it back to us
by the litre

I kid you not
Unbelievable gall
I really believed
I’d seen it all

They know where we live
we’ve been done properly
The ultimate case
of highway robbery
