In Menheniot, Cornwall, after thirty years
The council agreed to provide
A shelter for the local bus stop
Where the waiting queues could hide.
But would your common old plastic job
Be good enough? Oh no!
They invited a local architect
To come and give it a go.
So twenty thousand pounds was spent
On green oak and Cornish slate
And nearly twelve months later
The shelter looks just great.
It certainly is a grand affair
And, if it had some heating,
Could even be the venue
For a local council meeting
And having spent that kind of money
The council should be on show
For the buses were taken out of service
About three months ago.
