Only in England
"Mind the speed bumps" by Colin Lowley
I drove over a bump and my head went thump,
too fast was my car and I didn't get very far,
they are there for a reason! No pedestrian in sight!
They save many lives, but not the drivers plight.

No policemen are then needed to hide behind a tree,
camera- action for thieves, by government decree.
Slow down or be dammed whichever which way,
a speed bump in every street no matter what we say.

On the motorway those cameras dish out the fines,
with no other car in sight as you cross the limit line,
speedy and greedy now in England go hand in hand
drive carefully now, in our green and pleasant land.

Author Notes
Only in Cornwall have I not noticed any while on holiday.
Those were the old London Abt 1920-30.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
