Fuq il-karozza tal-linja

“Bum! It-tajer infaqa’,” bdew jghidu n-nies.Ix-xufier waqaf u mar jiccekja x’gara. Kien tela’ fuq il-bankina u ghalhekk infaqa’ t-tajer.

            Ix-xufier ma kellux tajer iehor. Ix-xufier kien qal li diga t-tielet darba li  nfaqa’ t-tajer. Kellu msarnu f’saqajh ghax ma kellux tajer iehor.

            Il-gwardjan lokali gie. Staqsa  x’kien gara lix-xufier. Qal li rega’ nfaqa’ t-tajer. Il-gwardjan ra li kien hemm pompa tal-petrol,  x’kumbinazzjoni.

            Kien hemm ragel u mar igib tajer ghax ix-xufier ma setax imur hu. X’hin wasal  ix-xufier  qallu li wisq zghir. In-nies bdew jeqirdu! Ir-ragel wasal  u qallu ”dan l-ikbar li hemm”. Irrispondieh “Dan tajjeb!”

            Ix-xufier wahhal it-tajer. In-nies qalu “Ghall-erwieh.” Qalilhom ”Skuzawni!” Ix-xufier mar lejn triqtu.

Bum!  Rega’ t-tajer  wara siegha. In-nies qalu ”daqshekk! Issa ahna tlaqna l’hemm”. Ix-xufier qal ”anke jien… ghax ilek taghtini nkwiet minn mindu bdejt insuqek!”
