It is reported that it has been snowing and the usual travel chaos has ensued.
It snowed a bit, I think, last night,
I wondered if it would, or might,
Cause problems in the morning rush,
With drivers getting out to push.
The gritters had been out all night,
The train tracks checked with IR light,
But, in the end, road, rail and plane,
Were bound to see delays again.
When this occurs folk bitch and moan,
Can’t get to work or later home;
And any transport they might use,
Is bound to be mobbed out with queues.
The schools are closed, the kids can’t go,
So they all play out in the snow,
And if they should fall down or trip,
They’re advised not to break a hip,
Because to get to A and E,
Might not so very easy be.
But to these folk I should explain,
That transport systems in the main,
Are always running at full tilt,
Because some more needs to be built.
And so when things like snow occur,
It’s pretty easy to infer,
That disruption there’s bound to be,
Upsetting then both he and she.
So when it snows, then what to do?
There’s not one answer, it is true,
So better just warm clothes to don,
And then KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.
