Bridges Don’t Fall Down

Regarding Responsibility…

       Bridges Don’t Fall Down

Bridges don’t fall down
Not here in the U.S.A.
What can those in government possibly say
Though this make them frown

Well good
They should look at themselves hard
And should not in the least think to spare the rod

Upon themselves while thinking of those upon whom they have trod
Our officials should not be free to discard
Those that have withstood

Neglect or the rising of the ground
But the earth didn’t rise and this isn’t gray
It was neglect that led to this calamitous day
In a land where bridges don’t fall down
