Break during lessons

Break during lessons

A Poem by Wild Rose

Student were a bit dozy after lunch

So we had a break

Talk about things visitors ask

Student wakes up

I have one for you

 

Just left school

Working on the boats (Derwent Water, Keswick)

Selling tickets

On 'The Landings'

 

Man aske for a ticket to Windermere

"Sorry sir the boats don't go to Windermere

You will have to catch the bus

Down the road one hundred yards"

 

"I know these lakes are all connected

And I want to go to Windermere"

"All right sir Fifty pence catch the next boat

Tell the man to put you off in Windermere"

 

Boat comes in

Man gets on

As boat leaves

Students friends comes up

 

"The boats don't go to Windermere"

"You know that

I know that

And when he gets back He will know that"

 

"And when he gets back

He will have missed the last bus"

"Time we were off home for tea"

Not being a Brit, I have no idea about this but just love it! Reads like Dickens, and I have to laugh at the mischief and droll humour of it. Great real-time presentation in the telling of it- witty and great timing. Last line was stellar! Thanks for the smile and great poem Wild Rose!
