Ha! This is a good one and I am using a poem already published in October 2014 in https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2014/10/03/paint-the-phantom-menace/
which sums up a particular predicament to a T.
I always believed this was written by my Dad, but if not, no infringement is intended on the original author.
As they say in the movies,
this is a work of fiction and any resemblance to events or persons living or dead is entirely coincidental.
This is the tale of Sonia Snell
To whom an accident befell.
It happened one day as does to many
That Sonia wanted to spend a penny,
And so she entered with modest grace,
The properly appointed place
Where she sat in meditation
On the seat provided by the Railway Station.
But alas, she was unacquainted
That the seat was newly painted,
And so imagine her surprise
At her inability to rise.
This gave the most astonished Miss Snell
Give voice to a resounding yell,
Which brought out all the Railway staff,
Who were most polite, and didn’t laugh.
The Station Master took one glance
And quickly called an ambulance,
Which on arrival had no luck,
In freeing her, she stayed stuck!
‘Well,’ said the driver. ‘This takes all
She’s got a wooden wear-with-all.
Has anyone seen the like before?’
‘Yes,’ said a student, unashamed.
‘Frequently Sir, but never framed!’
