… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

Those people on the highway

Driving in the fast lane

Needing to take the next off ramp

Only 200m away

Cutting across THREE LANES

And in front of ME

To catch the off ramp


Upsets me


Those ones in the 1.4 Corsa’s

And the 1.3 Tazzes

Don’t EVEN talk about the UNO’s

Who overtake ME

Driving a BIG ASS

2.4l DOHC car

Profoundly aggrieves me


The ones in the half-loaf cars

Which should be banned

From the fast lane

Maybe the N1 too

Who catches that bloody gap


This too

Overwhelmingly distresses me


That Hunk in the red A4

Who was behind me all the way

Is now 10 cars ahead

‘Coz he jumped the queue

Took the off ramp at meter ZERO

Drove on the solid line

To bypass EVERYONE

This DEEPLY offends me


That dolla driving 80 km/h


Not getting OUT OF THE WAY



Barrelling down her ass

Whoo, this upset me too


And that ou toppie

In the slow lane

In the beaten Ford Escort

And looked like Tweety

Who cannot get a move on

To at least 60 km/ph

So that I can overtake


In the middle lane

Right next to me


Just downright pisses me off


Have a fabulous weekend, ya’ll

    that is why I bought a Defender… 😉 It is too slow to get stuck behind other cards, it is to big to be pushed, and even when I speed I still move slowly but it feels fast… 😉 Have a good weekend.
