11th July, 2014 Another fun appearance on Rob Adcock's Drivetime show on BBC Radio Northampton. I couldn't resist the Tom Jones theme - see if you can spot it ;-). To hear this week's poem, click the player below... GK’s Peek at Drivetime's Week – 11/07/14 It is not unusual, the week starts with a poll So Monday had Rob ask us, “Does your doggie ever roll?” But moving swiftly on, let’s check what else the week has seen Like flower shows at Hampton Court, designs by Marcus Green Sixty seven million to be spent across our shire On homes and roads and colleges and offices for hire And with that comes a bypass, mixed blessing then for Flore Let’s hope our busy A&E will also get some more…. Which moves us on to sporty woes, our cyclists’ breaks and bruises And not to mention cricket – nought about which us amuses! But least our county cricket ground fares well within this poem ‘Cos Tom Jones sang to thousands on that green, green grass of home And our dear Rob, he saw him, belting out with great aplomb As knickers flew, and women twerked along to their sexbomb Ooopps… time to move this ditty on to national concerns Like loyal banking customers getting poor returns Passport chaos reigning, and the World Cup seeing shocks New blood tests for dementia early warn of ticking clocks Our faith in Whitehall filing, now damaged by and large And tougher airport checks will mean your mobile must have charge Certain NH patients may control their spending budget Though some have hinted that is just another cost save fudge-it Perhaps a backdoor method to help avoid more strikes For Thursday saw some parents wanting teachers’ heads on spikes But anyway… what other little shiny Drivetime jewels Have taken place to take our minds of health and striking schools? Moulton’s hosted games, and Silverstone’s pushed more car culture Egypt’s threatened riots ‘cos Northants has sold a sculpture And the chosen expert, Lorna, shared her joy of fashion thrills Bright colours, maxi dresses, less bling, more espadrilles So next year we’ll be asking, as Rob grasps the marriage baton Will he choose cravat or tie? And will he leave his hat on…?!
