On Chicago Construction

And now, a short poem I composed while reflecting on the driving fiascos that were Friday driving up to Gurnee, Saturday driving down from Gurnee, and Monday going to and from an interview and Logan Square.  You know it’s sad when you (repeatedly) take a shortcut through the streets of downtown Chicago in order to avoid a traffic jam.

“Chicago in Summer”
A bitter haiku about every damn road between Indiana and Wisconsin

Slow!  Stop!  Construction
Burning gallons at a crawl
Oh, futile fury

… And another one about semi-trucks (if/when I have time I’ll probably publish a sizable rant about the American highway systems and trucking industry)

I hate highway freight
Trucks are ruining our roads
Thanks, Eisenhower
