The Laughing Policeman

By 7th March 2013December 9th, 2019No Comments

I drove onto the roundabout
And went the wrong way round,
Going very slowly.
I nosed up to the Police Car
And we both got out.
My daughter was my passenger
Who thought it very funny.
I grovelled to the Officer
Admitting my mistake,
But said, in mitigation,
That I didn’t know the area.
Surprisingly, he laughed
And said, “That’s all right sir.
Sometimes these things happen.”
Then he stopped the traffic
While I turned my car around
And he sent me on my way.
Such a lovely man.
Not like the b******
Who did me in Wanstead.
