Cues for More Really Awful Queues


We didn’t want to miss the boat
When getting round to place our vote,
So we were early there
Our duty we weren’t going to shirk,
But then equipment wouldn’t work,
Which had us in despair;
For lots of people were in sight –
They snuck up there in dead of night,
Which really was unfair;
Already we have paid our dues
When standing in such awful queues
Not getting anywhere;WP_20160803_08_22_18_ProBut, grimly, we all stuck it out;
Two hours later, round about,
We left, of ‘X’, a pair!
Then off to beach to celebrate –
An English breakfast there we ate,
And very good the fare!

      Grrrr, Didn’t think of borrowing a baby.
      Mind you, we were uncertain whether to be miffed or flattered that we (that is, Much Better Half and self) were not singled out for special preferential treatment as many of the pensioner-types were.
