LETTER: Ode to city’s new southern by-pass

So they’re going ahead with the by-pass

At least that’s what people think

And despite all those bemoaners

Chucking all but the kitchen sink.

But please dont get too excited

You may also want to watch:

There’s lots to happen yet

The ground will be too hard or soft

That’s certainly an even bet

Come Easter they’ll start on construction

Now that will be just a pain

When a guy carrying a clipboard says: ‘Sorry we had too much rain’

And when it’s finally finished

By about 2022?

People will be asking

Why didn’t we have it dualled?

..... and so it goes.
