Rondeau for the 14
The Mission Street bus-only lane
is proper use of public domain:
if jammed traffic ruins the flow
our packed bus should not slow;
bus blocking cars cause pain!
Motorists, they whine and complain,
‘cause their cars have had such free rein;
parking-mad merchants demand to veto
the Mission Street bus only lane.
To fight against it is inane,
blocked buses are insane!
Enforce by ticket or by tow
and ridership will grow!
Red paint helps to maintain
The Mission Street bus only lane.
