I see people talk of cars,
Big, luxurious with attached bars.
But if given a chance,
I would always take the public travelling stance.

With chauffeur driven buses and trains,
Comfortable chairs, ACs and no strains.
A place to pursue all your hobbies,
Reading, writing, drawing and chatting with buddies.
A place to observe and meeting new people,
Talking, discussing and making mates.

Economics too has a role
I pay one-fourth of the toll.
The driving, servicing and maintaining cost
Also is not to be thought.
I do my share of ‘go green’ work too,
With less emissions, less pollution and less traffic to get into.

I still ponder do we really understand what luxury is?
Is it to own what everyone owns?
Or is it in having a more comfortable zone.
