We all like a good moan about everyone’s least favourite motorway.
But one motorist has taken his disdain of the M62 to the next level.
Kevin Fitzpatrick wrote a fantastic poem on driving on the notorious highway bemoaning how he’s “never seen a workman working on the ‘62”.
The three-verse poem asks where the workmen are, who have been seen by few since a 50mph speed limit was brought in earlier this year.
The poem begins: “I’ve seen the hoards of roadwork signs, When I’m stuck in a queue.
“I’ve seen the miles of traffic cones, The yellow diggers too.
“I’ve seen discarded safety hats, And high viz vests askew.
“But I’ve never seen a workman, Working on the 62.”
Kevin, from Wakefield, continues: “I’ve seen the portacabins, Are they in there with a brew? Are they hiding in the ditches? Or in a portaloo?
“Has working in all weathers, Caused them to have the flu?
“Coz I’ve never seen a workman, Working on the 62.”
The catchy poem was posted on Twitter and caused a stir among like-minded motorists, with one calling Kevin a “literacy superstar”.
The final verse adds: “These roadworks should have finished now, They are way overdue.
“We’re limited to 50 still, When we are passing through.
“Large pictures of their children stand, For us all to view.
“But I’ve never seen their daddy, Working on the 62.”
