Shortcut - Poem by David Darbyshire

I am sure if we
all took shortcuts
there would be
half as much pavement

Why take the long way round?
cause to the roads we are bound
taking another route, shortcut
might save time somewhat

but we are all stuck in our ways
and the company usually pays
so why take a shortcut?
To start a movement
and save on Pavement

    I took a short cut once, and added 2 hours onto my 30 minute journey. But, hey, thats me, always getting lost.

    Love, Fran the Fan xx
