The Rite of Passage!


Back in the day, an important rite of passage was the first car. I had a second-hand Mini from Jenkins Garage in Baldock. The open road was suddenly all mine and like Toad of Toad Hall, I couldn’t wait to go ‘Poop Poop!’ These days, as with almost everything, rites of passage occur at an earlier age. My granddaughter (1yr 4months) has just taken delivery of her first car…
The first carMy granddaughter has a brand new car
It’s yellow, red and plastic,
She sits in it with monkey,
To her it’s just fantastic!

It is ecologically sound,
Doesn’t run on fuel,
No MOT or road tax,
It’s cheaper than a mule!

No congestion charge to pay,
Because of no emissions,
If PC Brock tells them to stop,
She and monkey change positions!

Wishing you all the best for 2014 and thank you for keeping me on track during 615 days of rhyming scribbles!
Hope I continue to ‘amuse-par-bouche’ in 2014
