The road past the farm is long and straight. Unfortunately it soon becomes twisting and winding with no place to overtake safely for many miles. This is perfect for racing motorbikes on Wednesday nights and at weekends. In fact it is so perfect they call it a ‘must ride’ road and it sounds like a Moto GP. Drivers of cars take whatever opportunity they can to overtake, even if dangerous, as it could mean a minute saved…
Driving just two miles from the farm,
came over the hill with some alarm,
a silver car overtaking,
suddenly felt my knees shaking.
I awaited with dread a crashing sound,
I had managed with ease to slow right down,
The only sight that did linger,
as he sped past, he gave ME the finger!
If you’re driving today just remember there are some silly sods out there who haven’t time to live. Take care.
