Cities with Lightrail and cities with freight
Have a lot of delays and traffic-light wait,
I’m not really objecting
Because the services are needed,
I just really wish
More overpasses interceded.
Most commonly this is a repurposing
Of ancient railroad track,
One hundred years old, before the time
Of the automobile ground attack,
Cars, trucks and motorcycles
Bikes, pedestrians and more,
Now a two mile trip
Can take twenty minutes to the store.
