Pavement Diversion!


Mr & Mrs Smith & Mr & Mrs Meek
Block the pavement every week
In all the towns across the nation
Is replicated this irritation

They stop to chat, to moan, berate
The dreadful behavior of youth of late
It never happened in their day
Was life that dull and drab and grey?

Off they move after half an hour
Of carefully executed blocking power
Sid and Mavis, Bert and Dolly,
To arm themselves with a supermarket trolley!
