Limerick Ode To Our Pothole

Limerick Ode To Our Pothole
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I reported a pothole last week,
And the city did give it a tweak.
Have they fixed it? You’re joking,
Or possibly toking.
Adding cones seems to be their technique.

This dangerously deep pothole is less than a block from our house. Mark just snapped this pic of it:

    NYC’s Administrative Code was shuffled 3 times: 1979, 1982, 2003. Sts & potholes are the responsibility of the city. [Maintaining safe sidewalks is the duty of the corp or person(s) who owns the land adjacent to the sidewalk.] Perhaps DOT will stuff it tonite? How many rats have ya seen pop outta that pothole? Pot = deep cylindrical shape…not a place to toss your pots & pans.
