Ode to Incompetence

Sometimes my creative genius emerges while I’m riding my bike, as happened a few days ago when I composed this in my head:

[To be recited in a sing-song voice.]

Erosion, erosion, erosion.
That is what you get
When you are an idiot
And you build things like shit.
¡Olé!

I dedicate this piece of work to the brilliant minds who planned and engineered the new pedestrian and bicyclist underpass in my city in such a way to guarantee that an entire 6-foot long portion of the path on one side of the underpass will be a giant mud puddle any time that it rains.  These geniuses also failed to include any ACTUAL USERS of the underpass (i.e., pedestrians and bicyclists) in the planning process.
