Day 7: Road Sign

LINDA – A POEM
JUDY – A PHOTOGRAPH
CAROLINE – AN ART PIECE

 

Road Sign
 
Man with umbrella they mock,
Road Works ahead.
It looks like he’s opening a brolly
That’s how it started, that’s what they said.
 
Red triangle and motorist’s heart sinks,
Road Works ahead.
If only the sat-nav had foreseen this
I’d be home safely in bed.
 
Slow moving vehicles,
Road Works ahead.
Snaking lines of traffic,
Should have taken the by-pass instead.
 
Cones on the road,
Road Works ahead.
Don’t trust the diversion sign, 
Adding miles to the journey and misled.
 
On every motorway every day,
Road Works ahead.
Gravel and tarmac, bitumen and asphalt
Sealing the holes so widespread.

 

A handmade book, a thing of beauty – could be a map? road sign?
