The Rain in Wales falls mainly on me

Tomorrow I'll travel along the M4
With three other pilgrims I am venturing far
Beyond the metropolis

Avoiding the service cafes as we drive
Our in-car refreshments will help us survive
Without a risky pitstop

Bridging the waters with much trepidation
Forced to pay tolls to enter the Welsh nation
What one does for family!

Maybe this once the rain will not fall
The sun will shine in Cardiff and we all have a ball
But I'm not banking on it!

I knew her name and her address
I couldn’t help but hear
With mobile stuck to eardrum
She wasn’t even sitting near

She thought she was in a bubble
That somehow sealed off sound
Or why would she give her email
To everyone around

I learnt she was complaining
About her orders non arrival
With details of her credit card
Bang goes security survival

I didn’t mean to eavesdrop
But volume meant no choice
If you must use mobiles on the train
Why not just mute your voice!

If a man should start wet shaving
On a tube train at half eight
The carriage would be horrified
I would at any rate.

But girls with pasty faces
Are regularly to be seen
Inflicting complete strangers
To their whole makeup routine

I don't want to have to worry
If eye-liner goes on straight
If you need to wear foundation
Then don't get up so late

Use your bathroom mirror - please................

The Failed Cyclist

Most modes of transportation I'm confident to choose
But a Cycle Superhighway I know I'll never use
Sorry Boris not all of us are happy on your path
The learning falls and bruises were really not a laugh
I taught my children how to ride they trusted me it's true
I never said I couldn't ride, if they had only knew..............

Failed Cyclist
