SATNAV...A 'Poem' by Pam Ayres

I have a little Satnav, it sits there in my car. A Satnav is a driver's friend, it tells you where you are. I have a little Satnav, I've had it all my life, it's better than the normal ones, my Satnav is my wife.

It gives me full instructions, especially how to drive "It's sixty miles an hour" it says, your doing sixty five. It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake, and tells that it's never ever safe to overtake.

It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green, it seems to know instinctively, just when to intervene. It lists the vehicles just in front, and all those to the rear, and taking this into account, it specifies my gear.

I'm sure no other driver, has so helpful a device. For when we leave and lock the car, it still gives it's advice. It fills me up with counselling, each journey's pretty fraught, so why don't I exchange it, and get a quieter sort?

Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, makes sure I'm properly fed. It washes all my shirts & things, and keeps me warm in bed! 

Despite all these advantages, and my tendency to scoff, I only wish that now and then, I could turn the 'buggar' off.

 

Stay safe, keep healthy, and all the very best to all our friends everywhere
