Poetry Pleases: Paddy, His Mate And The Policeman

David Reid brings us eight rhyming lines, and one big chuckle.

TWO YOUNG LOUTS WERE SPEEDING, IN A BROKEN DOWN OLD CAR.
TEARING DOWN THE HIGH STREET, SKIDDING ON THE TAR.
PULLED UP BY A TRAFFIC COP, WHO ASKED EACH FOR HIS NAME.
THE DRIVER WHISPERED "MAKE ONE UP TWO CAN PLAY THIS GAME.''
THE DRIVER LOOKED BEHIND THE COP, AND SAW A NEON SIGN.
"MY NAME IS DAVID", "DAVID WHO?'' "JONES ", HE SAID "THAT'S MINE".
"WHAT'S YOURS?'' HE ASKED THE OTHER CHAP, NOW REALLY PANIC STRICKEN.
"MY NAME IS KEN", "KEN WHO MY LAD?'' "TUCKY FRIED CHICKEN.''
