The car my husband used to drive
Was getting rather old.
We didn't need two vehicles,
So his was duly sold.
He had an "AA"* membership,
And this had once been fine.
But now it was not wanted,
So he rang up to resign.
They said they'd send a letter,
To confirm that all was ended.
But this arrived and told him
That he'd asked to be "suspended".
They'd kept his payment details,
There's nothing he'd need do:
The system would, in three years' time,
His membership renew.
He hadn't really left at all,
He still belonged, and so
Beware, once you have joined them:
They are loathe to let you go.
You may no longer own a car,
But that seems incidental.
Or perhaps they'll send assistance
If your roadside breakdown's mental?
