According to Joe
All aboard, like it or not
Waihee must have been the mayor's mentor
When the governor botched the convention center.
It's a sad, sad tale of fiscal abuses
To build something with too few uses.
Now the mayor is going to repeat that tale
With his frenzy to transport by rail.
Mufi is making a terrible fuss
"I want a choo-choo train, not a bus. "
Our roads and land, the train will take
And traffic jams will exacerbate.
For most, the stations will be too far
So where in the heck do I park my car?
It's an enormous cost, for a privileged few
How about Waianae, Kailua and Kahaluu?
Let's not humor Mufi's legacy.
It's an upscale, on-time bus for me.
