Ode to the Asphalt Worker

The asphalt worker is paving the town

As traffic snarls and drivers frown.

The cones are all set to direct traffic right

We hope that the job is completed by night.

They are digging up old to put in the new

It's all manual labor for this working crew.

The asphalt is poured and the raking now starts

The street will be sealed before they depart.

Their boots are black and their uniforms soiled

The crew is finished, each face shows the toil.

So when we see that asphalt truck

Lets give thanks because we're not stuck.

In the pothole we hit just last week,

Today our street is smooth and sleek.
