So there I was, walking on the road, and I went this way and that, along the highway, … Saw the MRTS poles standing on the road, with nothing on … Just cables reaching out, just waiting for the track to be laid on it…
Apparently the poles were erected a long time ago, and then the work had stopped….
Saw the highway start up again, a 2009 project that should have completed in 2013, but they were just digging up the road now… Encouraging…
And there were lorries, all parked in a row, some with bricks, laid side to side all in an inclined row…
And I walked on, and went this way and that….
And then I doubled back…
And crossed the road,
And then crossed it back…
And finally I was back on track…
And I went on some more, saw some other stuff,
Saw girders on the road, some roped together…
I looked for an opening, to get off the road,
Onto the footpath that girders created,
But there was rope from one to the other
I did not get in
And then there was a gap
So I stepped in, and walked a while
The ropes started again, and then I realized,
Better to be on the road, than on the footpath,
I stepped right out, and crossed the road.
There was an obstruction, but I scrambled over it,
And then I walked some more,
And I walked, and I walked,
Taking the shortest way I knew,
And before I knew it,
It was half-a-day.
So my mother is outside, pouring water,
Or is it the servant…
Just hear the water.
Usually it’s my mother,But this time, who knows.
