Doing the Plumstead Common Dash

School bells ring, are you listening,
In the road, cars are speeding
A pedestrian's right,
We're hoping tonight.
Walking in a Plumstead danger land.

Trying hard to stay calm,
Keeping baby from all harm
Mum puts her foot out, then the other
Walking in a London wonderland.

Shameless poetry I know but its fun trying to do the Plumstead common road dash. Despite 3 zebra crossings, we still have fun guessing whether cars will stop their 50mph dash so that we can cross to get to the recycle bins and take a walk around the park.

Wonder how the council would feel if I just lobbied the rubbish over the road and hoped to hit the opening of their bins? (mind you, not much hope of that as I always got picked last in school if you know what I mean)

Merry Xmas all.
