&Copy; 2014 Sara Davis Laughter Lines
Oh how I hate the ruddy things
I swear they bear a grudge
I can never do them up
At times they never budge.
I pull and pull and fight and fight
I cannot get them free,
And on occasions when I do
They won’t click in for me.
My son-in-law gets really mad
He thinks I’m not all there,
Till I belt up he will not start
I struggle and I swear.
The other day when I went out
My friend was by my side,
For once amazing! Mine clicked in
“I can’t do mine” she cried.
I leaned across and tugged and pulled
She shrieked with ahs! and ohs!
“That’s not the seat belt that you’ve got
You’re pulling off my clothes!”
In the end she held the belt
I shivered at the back,
Suppose we crash, the driver’s bad
A speeding maniac.
So if you find me by a car
Ashamed and in disgrace,
The seat belt and the car seat too
I’ve managed to displace.
