P is for POTHOLES, of which we have stacks,
Poor service is the reason;
Putting off maintenance all good sense lacks,
Pending some better season;
Previously all our roads were quite good,
Politicians would make them
Prioritised for cash outlay, as should –
Parties would never take them;
Poured into parties for party that rules,
Passing up things much needed;
Procrastination on part of these fools,
Plus wasting cash, succeeded
Patently in sinking feelings indeed -
Potholes and sinkholes of note -
Passage on roads such as this one would need
Progress across in a boat!


   The above impressive little lake opened up yesterday under that unfortunate vehicle in a road quite close to our home. The pothole is seriously serious about the business of being one.  Perhaps a portion of panic would be ap-propriate!

   Talking of lakes and such, I went sploshing again today and the intention is to repeat the exercise tomorrow after which all will be revealed …
