Poetic Dan

Cones attack

There all three of us was, packed up ready to go

Two hours left until midnight, we are going home

Music with no words, helped our silly verse, nothing could be worse.

Even left (Sally) the sat-nav on, to see the smooth blue road on the phone

Little did we know, we be invaded by the cones

Without any warning they start directing a new zone

Before we knew it they blocked our exit, we was going wrong

It was okay Sally was rerouting, we just continued with the flow

Over an hour later we're back near our exit sign, the phone says it's all blue but the cones still have us occupied

We have no choice, the car heater doesn't work, we are lost on the M25 the only option was to return back to where we came from.

Finally we escaped took a trip through Great Windsor Park, to all unpacked back in our grandparents home, where for the first time in my 38 years neither of them would be under that same roof.

Greatful to their help even though their not here, for a place to still bring laughter and cheer.

My children won't forget them as long as I'm here, or the night we got lost but reminded by cones.

Homes is where the heart is, no matter where we roam

Once love is felt, it can never leave home

    That's because there is no sweeter place than home and those traffick cones will remain for many a year to come. An essential piece of equipment used for a wide variation of things that need these mischevious cones..

        Always appreciated & greatful to mother nature!

        Blood maybe thinker but if the water was gone we wouldn't even be here to find our own song.

        Be water my friend
        Shapeless when still
        Ready to flow in a moment
        All & nothing is real

        Much peace and respect

        So very true, home is where the heart is every moment of our lives.

        The vagaries of the M25 eh?
