Evasive Action

Sep 2000

Oh No! it's that boring man from number forty-five.
He's on the other side of the road and yes,
He's going to cross over.
What do I do?
Stop and look in this shop window?
Bend down and pretend to tie my shoelace?
Cross over myself and look the other way?
Oh Oh! He's spotted me.
Hang on, he's turned and walked the other way.
Well I don't know, how rude can you get?
