Vero Verse – Infrastructure

Here’s a gruesome tale
About concrete that failed
Think about bridges, buildings and roads
That have fallen below local codes

I shudder when in other places I travel
Over concrete, rusted steel not sand or gravel
Will I be a casualty?
Of a fiscal insanity

Now when you’re irate
By any sign which states
“Detour” forcing you go out of your way
It’s best town codes are here to stay
