It's Not All Bad, Is It - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

It's Not All Bad, Is it?

The wicked road troll ruins our roads
     With his pick, shovel and axe.
Ah yes, he knows the holes he makes
     They’ll mend with people’s tax.

He does his deeds quite late at night,
     When you and I sleep tight,
And when he thinks of what’s to come,
     He laughs at all his spite.

The morning’s traffic starts to flow.
     Oh think of those poor souls

As down their wheels go bump bump bump
     In lots and lots of holes.

One driver’s hands wave in despair.
     He reaches for the phone
And asks someone to come and help
     And gives a fearsome groan.

There’s someone else, sat at the back,
     Who seems to be quite cool
For that someone, with joy in heart,
     Will miss a day at school!

PS: With joy in heart?  Surely not!
