It's sod's law when I'm out rushing hither and thither,

I seem to get stuck behind some soul in a dither!

Extremely annoying, but what's even odder..

I've often been seen as a bit of a plodder.

But I KNOW where I'm going (and even where I've gone),

While the ditherers don't know what planet they're on.

Completely oblivious of what's happening around,

They wander along looking more lost than found!

Gazing like kids in a world of their own,

You'd think they were walking the street all alone.

Staring obsessed at the sight of a chugger,

Potential pickings for a "dip" or a mugger.

I'm always amazed - and this is a fact...

That most of them manage to get home still intact!!

Thanks Yvonne - I meet more than my share here in the "tourist land" of central London, tho' I am better than most at spotting them in time to take avoiding action!
