Let us remember on this day
Those roundabouts that passed away.
While oftentimes we did complain
And curse all those who cut in lane,
I sometimes miss that old refrain
Don't block the road, you fool, give way!
An accident morn noon and night
Where angry drivers argued right
And wrong beside blue flashing lights.
Why did we have to come this way?
Now traffic lights have been imposed
To neatly intersect our roads,
While red light cameras punish those
Who won't stop driving the old way.
No doubt in time this too will change.
We'll swoop on drones, rail against trains.
Though all is new it's still same-same,
'Til roundabouts we pass away.
