Twiddle de de..

Don't you just hate buses! Only when they don't run on time or when they refuse to let you on. Not the buses of course but the bus drivers. We waited for an hour to get the last possible bus to the airport in Tenerife the other week. The nice lady in the bus station office at Los Cristianos had already reassured us in three languages that the airport bus was accessible for Ziggy (Nic's wheelchair) but when the bus arrived it was an ordinary green thingy with narrow steps at the front and there was no way that Ziggy could get on board. "Manyana" said the driver and started to close the sliding doors. "Hold on a mo' " I said, shoving two big bags on the front seat, "I'll have to leave her here, I've got a 'plane to catch!" The Spanish bus driver didn't know what to do, he just sat there revving the bus up impatiently. Luckily there were some old school Brits on board who came to our rescue, as I hauled Nic up the steps and plonked her in the front seat they helped fold Ziggy up and stash him in the luggage compartment underneath. We finally reached the airport with twenty minutes to spare.

I'm too angry to talk about
buses, when I'm fussed.
I wait aways and sometimes
but not often, one appears.
Most times I start to walk
the mile or so. And between
stops, after a while, one
whistles by.
At the next stop, I always
sit or lie, or queue in endless
stance, under a rain filled sky.
That's why I'm too angry
to talk about buses
when I'm fussed..

Billy not silly
don't want bus
to Piccadilly
Billy stand
here waiting
like a Roger Hunt
Billy don't know
the Ali McGraw
No wonder
Salford bus shelters
get smashed
to Daffy Duck
What about the punters
no-one cares
about the poor
Maggie's innovation
bus deregulation
She has got
a lot to answer for...

Buses are barmy
in hot and balmy weather
in hot and balmy weather
buses are barmy
