WE,VE HAD SOME SNOW.
By Brian Colley, Clowne, Derbyshire.
Oh dear! Again we've had some snow,
Why all things stop I just don't know.
Few inches can cause cars to halt
Although most roads have grit and salt.
Rail services are also hit,
But buses are the first to quit,
The airports close with cancelled flights,
While TV news shows all the sights,
Reporters sent throughout the land,
To talk to kids who think it's grand
Their school is closed and they can play in all the snow
upon a sleigh,
While those who do not want to shirk walk through it all to get to work.
Forecasters full of doom and gloom sit nug and warm inside a room
to tell us not to venture out while all the snow lays roundabout.
But old folk dash for milk and bread,
They think they need to plan ahead.
In numbers large they all invade the local shops, the shelves to raid.
To then allay their deepest fears they buy enough to last for years,
they're risking broken arms and legs to go and buy a dozen eggs.
If ever snowfall is so great like that of '47 weight,
How will we manage? No one knows.
This counrty will just have to close.
