This was an exercise which I had to do in a Creative Writing class. We were given unusual place names and had to use them as inspiration.
I wanted my poem to be upbeat and more conversational rather than the traditional style. I'd like some feedback to find out what effect it really has and how it could be improved. Thanks :)

Drive slowly and at 2 yards

Turn right the Satnav said.

Speed camera ahead, stay on guard,

For goodness sake watch yourself, use your head!

Take a sharp left, it's just round here,

Past the fields and the windmills.

Swerve now,

You're going to hit that fence!

Skidded,

Pull back.

Whiplash.

And why do I put up with your ignorance?

Okay, there's a sign ahead.

Passed it, what? Oh, Picklenash I read.

Sheep in the road, hold your horses.

I'm done with this, can't teach these courses.
