Bypass construction,
six lanes to two,
artery clogs

Succinct — you found the essential pulse of the poem! (And I'm so glad I'm not there!)

In human heart surgery, the clogged vessels are bypassed and blood flows to places deprived of the life giving fluid...at any rate the construction you see now reducing 6 to 2 will soon be completed and making 2 to 8...and life will be the better because of the work..

Sounds about right. You're not from Baton Rouge, are you?

trinitystar said...

I like it! It worked well. :o)

I hope this isn't an obscure way of telling us about a medical need as in PU's post. If it's just a traffic observation, then I'm glad I wasn't there. :-)

I like such short poems which are loaded with meaning.

Deft play of words, Pat :-)

Pat Paulk said...

No ma'am, in whatever sense!!

Sb, just for you!!

Kai, it is isn't it??

MB, hopefully I'm not. Thank you!!

Thanks Joyce!!

Thank you Margie!!

Polona, thank you!!

CJ, fortunately I don't have to often, but on the days I do... thank you sir!!

Plus Ultra, you just have to live through the construction/surgery.

DoughnutJane, no, but I've been through there. I live outside of Hotlanta, and this Summer it lived up to its name. Thank you!!

Trinitystar, thank you!!

Vaughn, I certainly hope not!! The overtones were intentional, I hope not prophetic.

C, it was!! Could be in the other sense too.

Russell, I actually have been doing that, 2 miles 3 and 4 days a week. Hopefully, I will keep it up.

TIC, in all senses!!

No, Floots, other than with sheep and bicycles, I understand it wouldn't. Thank you!!

Gautami, my muse was lazy yesterday. Actually, everyday, but, more so yesterday. Thank you!!

Thanks Pris!!
