It’s a sunny day and not a lot
to complain about
but I remember winter
and I shall
(complain a little)
Not about the weather,
it’s old hat,
but more
about the climate

Pot holes and politics
my nemesis, each as useless
as the other one,
Neither is a welcome sight –
either can wreck a day
that’s otherwise

Why I worry ’bout it
I don’t know.
The solution is a snap
I do avow,
The pot hole
and the politician’s
both an easy remedy.

An empty space
rattles most.
A bit of tar and cinders
is all you need
to still the flow
and fill the cavity.
