Unfinished Excerpt


Sitting upside down in the car
On its roof and well concealed
By the hedge it just leapt to
Land upside down in this field
The lesson being learned,
When going round a bend
Trying to pick up a ciggie
Can cause unfortunate end.

It seemed all quite peaceful
In an ending somehow right
To what had been a memorable
And very worthy long Stag Night.
Deciding to respond to
The penetrating shout
Of are you all alright
We decided to climb out.

Good Lord but I'm chuffed
This beery voice said
I saw you jump the hedge
And I though you were dead.
We stood around  a while
For a laugh and a joke
Each one of us enjoying
A much needed smoke.

Can I give you a lift he said
It's the least I can do
I can't wait for the police
ĎCos I've been drinking  too.
A country road mid 1960's
A cold and bitter night
Isolated and deserted and
Not a person or house in sight.

No such things as mobile phones,
No real need for the police to know
So by mutual consent we decided
It was a good time as any for us to go,
So he drove us back to Bert's place
Which wasn't really very far
And Bert had to wake and tell his dad
That he'd gone and crashed his car.
