Tom Green
Fife, Scotland
2007

They've dug oor roads up aince again,
Wi’ diggers great and sma’ man
The speed bumps they pit in last week
Are no' much guid at a’ man
And so aince mair they have descended
Tae the spot last week we thocht they'd mended.

But ae thing’s sure, their traffic lights
Have caused a great big slow down
Boy racers who’ve now gone elsewhere
Are causin’ grief in ither parts o’ town.
Just as weel we’ve earplugs an’ oor pills
Tae droon oot these damn pneumatic drills!
