The School Run: Highway Ode 1


Have you ever looked around you while stuck in a snarl up on a busy road? The variety of drivers is absolutely fantastic, the only similarity is that they are all behind the wheel. This is the first in a series of observations that I will be writing about over the next months, I hope you like it…

The School Run

At the wheel of the monster
A new four-wheel drive
A mother on the school run with ten seven and five
The car is compulsory
When paying school fees
The Labrador, Lurcher and two Pekinese
Her clothing’s immaculate
So is her face
No make-up on the school run would be a disgrace
She sits in the queue
Planning her day
She’ll shop with her friends and ‘Hubby’ will pay
