Advantages: you decide
Disadvantages: you decide
I could feel the romance in the air,
and the briskness of the winter air,
I could see the snowflakes fall to land,
upon the palm of my up turned hand.
I could see the children skip and play,
upon their shiny brand new sleigh,
but most of all I could see the smiles,
as the carpet of white just stretched for miles.
I could feel the joy upon each flake,
but knew coming morning for goodness sake,
I'd be cursing and moaning as I rose for work,
just praying that the car wouldn't play the jerk.
I'd went to sleep as the snow still fell,
and through the curtains the light shone well,
I just had a little prayer to say.
I hope the gritters come out to play.
When I drove to work the road was lonely,
and the gritter and been........the one and only.
So the drive was nice as I observed around,
the blanket of white that draped the ground.
It only takes me about half an hour,
to get to work when there's no rush hour,
but I spied the minor roads nearby where the buses stood still,
as the passengers cried I could hear the shrill.
For they had not been as fortunate as me,
cos gritters don't do minor roads you see.
The blanket that covered the ground in white,
had fallen steadily through the night,
and the man on the tele said there would be more snow,
but I need the dosh so to work I go.
I'd only been in about an hour or so,
when I looked outside to see snow snow snow.
It was coming down like I'd never seen,
and the flakes where huge like jelly beans.
The man on the radio said the buses had stopped,
and the bridge was closed so that's your lot.
I waited a bit hoping the shower would fade,
but everyone else had left in haste,
Should I take a chance and hope it clears,
or wait and sweat with all my fears.
I don't like driving on roads covered in snow,
the car just doesn't know where to go,
and it doesn't matter what I do,
I slip and slide........nothing else to do.
Anyway I decided to wait,
and watched as the snow fail to hesitate,
and as the inches of the blanket grew,
I slapped my face for I already knew,
that the decision was wrong and I should have went,
guess how the next few hours were spent.
It usually takes about half and hour,
to drive my way home in my clapped out car,
three and three quarter hours it took,
I was hungry and cold and had that evil look,
for I was mad as hell and started to nag,
I'd plenty to eat but only one fag,
I'd given some friends a free ride home,
I'm quite glad now that I wasn't alone.
For at least we tried to have a giggle,
but after three hours we all needed a piddle.
If it gets bad this year should I give it a try,
Of course I should I'm that kind of guy.
Perhaps I'll check the forecast more,
before I leave my own front door,
So next time it snows heavy I'll stay at home,
make some tattie soup and give the dog a bone.
