Ode to the Road

Ode to the Road

State Route 1 – 4 – 4
No ordinary travel chore

Bump, bump, a thump

As babes cut teeth,
Cars cut squeaks

Bump, bump, a thump

Heavy duty struts
Can’t tough the Island ruts

Bump, bump, a thump

Windows shake and rattle
Atop the Main Road battle

Bump, bump, a thump

Chip your teeth?
Bump your head?
…Shed a hubcap?

We’ll post an orange sign
And mark the dratted bump

Bump, bump, a thump

  1. A poetic rhythm from the Rock’s resident poet.

    “the greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor.” – Aristotle
