Shaky Heights

A foreman for the city does reap
Lots of overtime and city heap
The streets covered with snow
My heap’s heater says “no”
I just long for that thing they call sleep 

I spent the last 16 years of 30 as a city foreman

    Yes, and the city I worked for rarely followed the CDL guidelines of 12 hour limit on driving. The longest I've worked was 32 hours straight cleaning up trees after a winter storm. Forestry is the actual dept. I was foreman of. Thanks for the comment and agape.

    A tough job for sure, Randy, and I'm sure you've had to work all through the night quite often. Congratulations on your win. Check the blog I just posted on the home page and you'll find that a dozen people helped decide the rankings for this contest. Love, Carolyn
