A Race Against Time!

More traffic jams! My friend was late
Roadworks here do not abate
The flow of cars has now increased
So construction lorries have no peace!

The barricades are still in place;
To pour hot tarmac – it's a race
To meet the deadline – August end
The school run starts tomorrow, Friend!

A one-way system, quite contrived
So Boitsfort neighbours can survive
Bollards block those who would park
On soft verges after dark...

A tight squeeze – traffic flow is dense
Queues of cars in every sense
The red and green lights cannot cope
SNAFU - but we live in hope!

Note for the curious: on 1st September traffic flow re-established!!!
