The Manager of the Big Dig

said, the job will take all summer
and might spill over into the fall
because of the cars which demand to pass through
this distinguished historical river town.
He says this job would take more time
more trucks, more gravel,
more engineers who sit behind
computers and reconfigure how
the job could be done faster
but there are unexpected
bumps in the road and
the weather sometimes
does not cooperate
and those darned cars
keep coming through
because it is summer
and tourists want
their vacation
despite the fight
to get through
town.
