What do you think of my poem about being called back today for a 24 hour shift!?
HONK! BEEP! Sport fisher,
High windshield!.!.!.traffic signals on,
Gates down, cathead motor on,
Bridge horn! Pulls rope!.!.!.
Go out, get rope, show fisher,
Wave it at him, frayed ends
Flying everywher in sight!
"Why ain't you opening the
Haul piece of broken rope,
Wrap it around his propeller,
"Why ain't you moving anywhere!?"
Pull bridge in!. Cathead motor off!.
Gates up!. Traffic lights off!.
Call office!. Inform!.
Kick back!. Watch t!.v!.

Crikey, this bridge thing is a darn-sight more complicated than I thought!. I imagined you sitting in a room, high-up, windowed and down below is the bridge!. You see a boat, you press a button - up goes the bridge, away they go!. Press button, down comes bridge!.!.!.- time taken 10 minutes max!. Watch t!.v, feet up coffee!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
