NaPoWriMo Day 8 – Public Notice Regarding Paved Streets

Here’s the type of public notice that we should be receiving from our city council, but I doubt that they will ever draft this public notice, and so I am drafting it for them…

We regret to inform
that due to poor planning
we have been forced
to downgrade all paved streets
in the city to a status of
“drive at your own risk –
four-wheel drive recommended”
we recognize that this is the case
every. single. spring.
but apparently
we are unable
to learn from past mistakes
and we are hoping
that due to budget constraints
the potholes will
continue to spread
until we can say
with great pride
that our streets are now
paved with potholes
rather than asphalt.
we suspect that that will
fix the problem.

sincerely,
the department of road maintenance
