Signs

Watch for falling rock the sign said. Well I wonder who he is and how he got lost? Must have been a blunder.

Narrow Bridge, I thought to myself, what a quaint name for a bridge as I looked at the arrow pointing to my left.

No U turn, well I don't see any place to turn, or is that reffering to me?

Dam Water ahead, well that must be some terrible water, 
but such language why bother?

Watch for children playing? 
I don't have the time so I'm certainly not staying!

So many signs, so much confusion. Think I'm
going to put up my own sign~~~

"WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN
 WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SIGNS
AND WHO WAS THE CONFUSING
BUGGER THAT WROTE THE BLOODY THINGS?"

Whew, I feel much better now :>)

    I love this up until your ending. "WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SIGNS AND WHO WAS THE CONFUSING BUGGER THAT WROTE THE BLOODY THINGS?" Whew, I feel much better now :>) I see what you were trying to do, but I don't think the humour is there. It's not witty enough in it's wording. All of it before hand however, is simple and superb! Great work.
