Dear German living in London,
don’t laugh when the British say “Severe Weather Warning“.
You might not believe it when those small flakes are falling.
but when you go out to Shoreditch for dinner and a thrill.
Please remember the way home is uphill!
You’ll be slipping and sliding behind cars full of fear,
whose idea of snow driving comes from watching Top Gear.
No winter tyres or snow chains to see, just uphill bumpers and poor little me.
Three hours later, when you’re still on the road,
please remember you were already told.
Severe Weather Warning means:
Madlen, don’t go exploring.
