I LIED AGAIN!
Another NON-poem that is really an article ...
or - SUMPIN' ELSE?
DOTS - D.O.T.
© - Tom Hyland - 9/20/10
Many Moons Ago - When ...
Some of us Ole Farts were Kids -
A Favorite Candy chomped on . the Movies ...
Was DOTS - chewy fruit-flavored LUMPS -
That stuck to your Teeth!
They still Exist - and still STICK!
These were the ‘NORM’ long Before -
GUMMY BEARS were ever Created!
My Adult Kids (Veggies) - will Not eat Them!
Said the GEL as in - Jello - is made From ...
The HOOVES of Animals! YUCK!
D. O. T. ...
Department Of Transportation -
One of, if not, the Largest - Agencies ...
In Every State, as well as Fed ...
BUDGETS that ‘Blow The Mind!’
Roads - Highways - Inter-States - Intra-States - Bridges ...
INFRA-STRUCTURES - That are FALLING APART!
More Money Spent Than Even GOD Has - Yet DEFUNCT - DUH?
This brings us Full Circle to the Third Tine -
In this Trident of POSEIDON ...
No - Not the Nuclear Ballistic Warhead -
Rather, the Greek god of the Sea!
God Bless ‘Em!
IDIOPATHY? A Disease of Unknown Cause ...
Is it perhaps Idiomatic in Nature?
i.e. - a Transportation Language that Defies the Workers -
From Understanding Each Other?
Kind of like ‘The Tower of Babel’?
This might explain WHY and HOW ...
They SCREW UP so Badly?
Is ASPHALT Really an ASS-FAULT?
The Definition of INSANITY is said to be:
Repeating the Same Mistake -
Over - and Over - and - OVER!
ERGO - might not some IDIOTS ...
Also Suffer from Insanity Also?
Could Macadam be the Real Culprit?
Is TAR - in fact, yet Another Petroleum Product!
SO - Let us RECAP ...
We EAT the Hooves of Dead Animals ...
We PROMOTE Incompetents - Based on - The ‘Peter Principle’ ...
We ALLOW IDIOTS to Screw-Up our Roadways ...
Then, we Apathetically just - Bitch n’ Moan ...
Sound About Right?
PUCK: “What Fools These Mortals Be!”
P.S. Learned New Word Today ...
Obsessive Fear of the Number 13 ...
Obviously a Malady of Sky-Scraper Builders!

|Nice rant. I don't care for dots either, but I'm OK with the hoove part, I chew my fingernails sometimes. Dots stick to my teeth way too much and I actually sucked a crown off a tooth once. Dentist was not pleased. By the way next time you fly, don't book row 13 or you'll end up walking. Patrick|
