Letter to the editor: Mean streets
To the editor:
My Lawrence time’s starting its 50th year,
And on balance it’s been pretty good being here.
But something now stops me just dead in my tracks;
Our streets have gone mean with their potholes and cracks.
I’m finding that getting from here on to there
Has become a huge pain in my old derriere.
With the damage that happens to tires, wheels and struts,
The mechanics are happy, but I’m going nuts.
So I’m hoping massaging the budget around
Will allow cash to make street repairs to be found.
Then there won’t be those cracks and those potholes to miss,
And my drives will return to a calm state of bliss.
