I USED to like to drive to Corfe but now I’m at a loss.

It takes me half an hour just to get to Harman’s Cross

The 30 mile an hour rule has made the journey worse

My Sat Nav thinks I’ve changed my mind and goes into reverse

I know that it’s a safety law to save pedestrian souls b

But then I never see one. Just all those signs on poles.

I crawl along the empty road and all around I look.

To help me pass the time next trip I think I’ll take a book!
