The Road

rains came

sometimes only a drizzle

or a pouring out all day

slope of the terrain meant it would not pool

rather it made a tiny groove in the crushed gravel

 

winter came and it rained and rained

groove went deeper into the road until it was a rut

Now tires might get stuck

a flash flood would wash it away

that would keep the people out

the road needs maintenance
