I had to laugh (and agree) at Brian Lageose’s ‘The 12 Pains of Christmas’:

The 12 Pains of Christmas – Part 2

After the less than pleasurable drive to the supermarket this morning, I used Brian’s title and made up this poem whilst sitting in a queue of traffic.  I only needed to buy 6 things, but it took me 2 hours to get back home.  The magic of Christmas has started to bite.

On the twelve pains of Christmas

I hope that you’ll agree …

Twelve miles of tailbacks

Eleven diversion signs

Ten loos shut for cleaning

Nine ladies desperate

Eight road closures

Seven people shouting

Six cars competing

No spaces left …

Four honking horns

Three potholes

Two boy racers with a stripe,

And a white van up my exhaust pipe.
