Jeepney sa Paglaya

Ni ROMMEL ‘PIPOY’ F. LINOTOC  Jeepney ng Bayan, ikaw ay kasaysayan Jeepney ng Bayan, buhay ko Kay daming pangarap, naging katuparan Ikaw ang saksi’t sinasakyan Bakit ngayon, ika’y pababayaan Gobyerno’y walang pakialam Pamilyang umaasa, ngayon ay gutom na Nanlilimos na lang sa kalsada O jeepney ng bayan , tayo ay babangon Kakaunin natin, taumbayan Bubusina…

Since the Arroyo regime expanded the value-added tax on oil and since the implementation of the oil-deregulation law, most jeepney drivers have to work long hours, often up to 14 hours a day. If they don’t, whatever money they earn for the day will only further enrich the oil companies — and they go home penniless. Think about this the next time you are tempted to curse jeepney drivers for being uncouth, discourteous and undisciplined, as the government is wont to depict them.
