“Mud In Your Eye"

Now this is an old expression
Well known by me an you
Yes this is what when you get when you don’t inspect
When the contractor says he’s through.
 
Well this has happened many times
So it’s really nothing new
The Main Street sidewalk’s a prime example
Now walked on by few.
 
Excitement broke out everywhere
About paving many city streets
Yet when finished it’s a sight to see
Like someone walked on with baseball cleats.
 
Where there used to be a ripple
Sometimes you find another coming through
Yes and unless the sun will melt the asphalt
It won’t be level for a week or two.
 
Yes another grant that has seemed to fail
To accomplish what was supposed to be
You cannot hide the mess-ups here
For if you open your eyes you’ll see.
 
What can we do to prevent this
Just make the leadership aware
Yes it’s time to show the constituency
That for them they really care.
