WHAT IF I LAMENTED ABOUT A MOB*?


What if you found you had a little lecture

Which clashed completely with a local MOB,

But with some really painstaking conjecture

Decided ducking out would do the job;

As soon as the important bit had ended,

You vanished in a little puff of smoke

And to MOB venue then your way you wended –

Now, here’s the part that really is a joke –

What if, upon arrival at this venue,

Where you had read the MOB was to take place

You couldn’t find a blogger there, and then you

Had little choice but journey to retrace?

It wasn’t just that bloggers were not present

(Or that they hadn’t come might be supposed);

What if, to make it even more unpleasant,

You found the venue well and truly closed?

      ‘Tis sadly true. The restaurant had closed at 3:00 and everyone had decamped to a pub WAY over the road by the time I got there some five minutes later. I tried other ones in the same centre without success, and returned to the lektcha, cursing roundly. It was a long drive, too.
