To turn the car round in the road
Take your time: is the carriageway bowed?
Once safely away, steer full lock but don't stray
From full obs. Near the kerb get it slowed!
Akin to a-cornering left,
Bay-parking may call for some heft.
For, unlike the first (which manoeuvre's the worst),
Full-lock steering is always the "beft".
To say a left-corner reverse
Is a stroll in the park is perverse!
But with low speed, your "skeel" (quarter-turning the wheel),
Will keep that left kerb nice and "terse" !
When approaching a parallel park
Think "Side-ways? Am I straight? No wheel arc?"
Knowing "LAuRA's the best", she no longer gets stressed
Using tail-lights / door-handles as mark.
First it's left, one full turn, then undo;
Go straight back till Han-del number two
Just touches the kerb, whereupon (says the blurb)
You turn right half as much: Hallelu!
ES is a game of two halves:
To avoid what the French call "cadavres"
Stop it firmly then make it secure, with handbrake;
Gear One, bite, safe?, release: "Oui, mes braves!"
To back round a corner to right
Begs the question "How IS your foresight?"
Is it so hard to see through your rear windscree'
That you'd want to drive over there? Quite
