Ivory Towers

by Jem Croucher
We've had to cancel Obi's field
as we cannot now drive there
the car is down to mere fumes
and there's no fuel anywhere
And because of the congestion
caused by massive traffic lines
queueing up at petrol stations
in these trying times
public transport's suffering
so we can't use that either
So we've cancelled Obi's field
and this week will take a breather

The irony here of course is that
there's plenty fuel out there
we've just run out of drivers
for supplies most everywhere
so because of a decision made
in corridors of power
the people once again lose out 
to those in ivory towers
Having said that I expect we'll find
in just a day or two 
the panic will be over
when new supplies get through
