Let Us Join The Town
We're separated by the creek!
by Frank V. Gardner
Frustrated by the pike!
We're cut off from the town in ways
No one of you would like!
A bridge will straddle Wolftrap Run
At Echols Street some day,
Instead of what we're using now:
that 'Pedestrian causeway'.
The Council says it wants a bridge,
So, please do not relent;
The more you wait, the more the chance
Of greater accident.
We've had a few already,
Though not serious they were,
The child who toppled in the creek
More likely was a 'her.'
A worse condition, though, exists
At Maple Avenue,
Where cars from here, and cars from there,
Are put in quite a stew.
Let's end the jam at Maple,
And not have to go around.
Solution is to build the bridge,
And let us join the town.
