English Traffic!

TRAFFIC
“No traffic here!”

Readers will remember the poems about driving in Cyprus. Since we have started to drive here in the UK, we have found the roads choked with traffic!

 

T    r    a    f    f    i    c    !

 

Traffic, Traffic

Photographic

Images are really graphic

Man in front, he picks his nose

Passenger with painted toes!

 

Nose-to-tailing

Faster sailing?

Tiny baby loudly wailing

Flicking ash or on the phone   (In the UK?)

Bound to make this driver groan!

 

Music booming   (Street “entertainment”!)

Boredom looming

Lady, hair she’s slowly grooming

In the mirror, will it crack?

‘Like to get her beauty back?

 

Four-by-fouring

Children snoring   (School holidays!!)

Crawling on is really boring

Bobbing dog on parcel shelf   (“Hello, Churchill!”)

Driving: “Damages your health!”

 

Patience waning

Necks we’re craning

“Bloody ‘eck, I think it’s raining!”  (Oh Dear, more Northern “speak”!)

County needs it, ‘been so hot

Sticky weather: “Really grot!”  (Southern “speak”?)

 

Motor-biking

Or… fell-hiking

Traffic jams to no one’s liking?

Hanging from a large balloon

Heading for the harvest moon?

 

Traffic, Traffic

Photographic

Snapping shots, they all are graphic!

Twenty minutes, road is clear

Hear a loud, resounding CHEER!  X X
