an 'almost' true story - Just for the giggle.
We rushed to catch the early bus,
we did it, we did, but it was a rush
we rattled up the curving stairs
proffered up our exact fairs,
then plumped upon our seats to rest.
"Are you wearing your warm vest
winter's nearly here my dear
and what about your navy knickers?"
Around the bus I heard their sniggers
and, pulling my hat down over my eyes,
wished I could find a better disguise
Then she said all hail and hearty
"Imust dig out your winter nighty"
Dear lord please make my mother stop
or let me die upon this spot.
