Only in Seattle
Here’s the text of a cringe-worthy poem displayed on ten signs along the Burke-Gilman Trail to notify bicyclists that a portion of the trail will be closed through Fremont for the next two years. The city’s transportation department wrote the signs with the help of a PR consultant.
We all love the Burke-Gilman Trail
Wending by hill and through dale,
But not far ahead
The trail you must shed
And along 34th you will sail!
You’ve followed the signs without fail
With nary a whine or a wail.
The path’s yours again
For a run or a spin
Viva la Burke-Gilman Trail!
