 once upon a time

johnmcguckin78gmailcomheathergibsonjohnnyduncangeishashadowsontheheart

 
We wandered over hill and dale 
Exhaust fumes catching in our throats 
As we noted the people out strolling:-In their cars?
 
  
Dipping beams to greet each other,
casual Strollers out to take 
the morning fumes, 
 
Occasionally come across one of those 
Strange breed, you know the sort, want to 
Perambulate along lane ways.
 
enjoying morning smell of hedgerows,
And watching 
Small birds flit daintily about, 
 
 Whilst we in our cars sit, walking!
 And laugh out loud, knowing
 Our exhaust fumes have ruined their morning 
 
 Motorized strolling in the morning 
 Makes one wonder what happened too
Old way of wandering.
 
now everyone 
Is rolling past 
letting us enjoy their exhaust fumes STROLLING:-IN THE CAR 
 
We wandered over hill, and dale 
  Exhaust fumes catching in our throats 
As we noted the people out walking 
In their cars 
 
  
Dipping beams to greet other casual 
Strollers out to take the morning fumes, 
All strolling: - in their cars 
 
Occasionally come across one of those 
Strange breed, you know the sort, want to 
Perambulate along lane ways enjoying 
The morning smells of hedgerows, 
 
 And watching 
Small birds flit daintily about, 
 
 Whilst we in our cars sit, walking, 
 And laugh out loud, knowing 
  Our exhaust fumes have ruined their morning 
 
 Motorized walking in the morning 
 Makes one wonder what happened 
Old way of strolling now everyone 
Is rolling past letting us enjoy the exhaust fumes
