Disasterville down Boitsfort way!
Blocked roads – there are new pipes to lay
Blue-yellow barricades in place
We're forced to drive at snail's pace.
Our only bus, the 17
Now meanders in the leafy green
Down a quiet lane, its peace perturbed
Each time the STIB's small bus is heard!
With “No parking” signs, this sleepy lair
Is now a mainstream thoroughfare
Cars and twice-weekly refuse truck
Must negotiate this turn – Good luck!
Agreed, the traffic flow is less
But detours cause no end of stress
Bulldozers swing out - so beware
Till end of August, they'll be there!
