Trendy Travel

Listen to Fiona ...
Miss Rush-About
Was often seen out
On her snazzy rollerblades
She went to town
And mowed folk down
While wearing funky shades.

Miss Rush-About
Would quite often shout,
‘Coming through now, make some space!’
The rude girl would frown,
She looked like a clown,
As she skated without any grace.

Miss Rush-About,
Thought one day to flout,
The rules of the Highway Code,
She went through a red light,
While signalling right,
And landed upon her poor ‘node’.
