Ticket Inspector Poem
“Tickets at the ready”
says the man in
the badge peaked cap.
If you’ve sneaked on without paying your fare,
it’s time to get in a flap!
The Relevant Authorities
An official frae the council
Telt me tae lower ma voice,
“or I’ll report you to the relevant authorities” said she.
No sae lang efterwards two bug-eyed polis
Read me ma rights at the station.
The sheriff that sentenced me next day looked gie young
Tae be haunin’ doon such pronooncements.
‘Breach o the peace’ he cried it,
When all I was daeing wis tryin’ tae tell the lassie
They’d undercharged me ma rent!
Honesty, they’d aye said at school, wis the best policy!
Aye! An ye ken no tae argue wi authority!
