Hi again – here is some more verse from Christina Lynn – don’t forget ANYONE can send their poems to me – they don’t have to be “original” – perhaps something you have liked and want to share with other members? As long as I have an author’s name…….

When I was young and very agile
I had a bike on which to travel
And then a motor-scooter I did get
But in bad weather, I’d get wet.
So earning then, and with some cash
A car I bought, cut quite a dash
I could now arrive in style
And cars I had for quite a while.
Now car and I are getting older
On the roads you must be bolder
‘Cos they are now so very busy
This traffic puts me in a tizzy!
When the car behind me gets too close
I’m sure they do it on purpose.
Just because I’m old and grey
They seem to think I’m in the way!
I’ve reached the age for something slower
Mobility scooter, though less power
Will suit me for the next few years
I’ll travel safer with less fears.
Though pavements which are most uneven
And obstacles can be a problem.
In “lockdown time” ’twas four o’clock
Not too far, just round the block
For our exercise we went
Me in road Vic on pavement
Social distancing applied
With regulations we complied –
We had not gone so very far
When I was stopped, a police car
Drew up beside me, questions asked
“Where are your number plates?” I gasped
And answered that they were not needed
For I the law had always heeded.
Insurance certificate carried with me
Perhaps that document he’d like to see?
But by then he’d had enough
I look back and laugh
‘Cos I was doing tortoise pace
On a scooter you don’t race.
Of speeding cars I’d heard a few
You’d think he’d better things to do!
So this incident deserved a verse
I think I may have written worse!
