If you live in Saskatoon
then you already know
that if you watch for long enough
you’ll see a pothole grow
their population’s booming
on cars they take their toll
I just wish that the city
would teach them birth control


I based the above poem on an article in the local paper that makes reference to “Saskatoon’s pothole population”.  I’ve never heard of potholes having a population, but it makes sense, considering they seem to be reproducing at an alarming rate this year.

Written for dVerse where we were asked to write dagsvers.  Dagsvers (or Daily Verse) is a primarily Nordic style of light-hearted journalistic poetry.  It is often combined with a drawing, but I have almost no artistic talent, so I’m going to pass on that aspect of the challenge.

  1. ha – we have potholes over here as well cause even though the population is reducing, the cars seem to get more and more… i wish we and they could spend some money for renewing them… at least they won’t have a demographic problem in that region..ha

  2. Excellent – I really understand this in a sense that it is laundry – I know it breeds in the basket! A population explosion I can well do without…
