Angry? Try ranting in bad poetry

by 9

And somewhere out there a driver builds into such a knot of impotent rage he has to express himself in poetry, badly.

Very badly.

Here’s Ian Fraser’s effort as published in the Lymington Times:

Cyclists who turn out in their lycra suits

Intent on crying out their favourite pursuits

Often come into the New Forest completely care free

Yet not for the scenery to enjoy or see

Riding main routes causing traffic to brake

Leaving motorists seething in their wake

Horse riders also look on with disdain

For when cyclists mass they can be a pain

They single-mindedly state their right to ride

Contempt for others they do not hide

This attitude at once began to swell

When banned from a pub because they smell

This local bad feeling they could solve

By adopting considerate riding as their resolve

Not gathering like a biblical plague of toads

Causing havoc to folk and Forest roads

Thanks to @bierebelle for letting us share this joy.

Seen better? (or worse?) Share that sucker with us…
