BEST MAN

BEST MAN He feels his situation could be dire On the hard shoulder, stands aghast A shiny black Mercedes flashes past At that speed, the fuel will not last But then he turns back to his flat tyre He’ll miss the wedding, not the fallout With a trunk full of luggage to extract To then find he has no spare, in fact Just one more item he knew he lacked Nor membership for breakdown callout The advice is to remain with the car Not seated inside, but standing apart And now he senses the rain will start A miserable feeling deep in his heart A day with performance well below par His phone has no signal at this location And now he is getting cold and wet Another thing he feared he’d forget Is the ring, and bride he’d not yet met And with no prospect of reparation A police car pulled up just behind They heard his dilemma and radioed in Arranged for a tow and repairs to begin Then got him to church top rescue a win A debt he owed when brought to mind
