Mums On The Run

Stay indoors till after nine O'clock!
It's hell out there and one almighty fray;
Arnold Schwatzenegers in a frock
Have set out and the school run's under way.
In armoured cars and tanks they hit the road
And for the school gate heedlessly they head,
Forgetting they once read the highway code -
You either clear the way or you are dead!
White Van Man trembles in their mighty wake,
The school bus stops and hides behind a tree,
Pedestrians in doorways stand and shake,
The cops are in café drinking tea.
The children of the run-mums simply smile.
It daily saves them walking half a mile.

How very true! The times I have been trapped in my parking space at 9am by cars parked willy nilly, here and there, by people who I know live just up the road. And it happens again at 3pm. Good one, Terry. Love, Fran xx
