springfield poem # 27

springfield poem # 27

I appreciate that springfield
is wanting to keep us walkers
and riders safe from the new
faster trains but the big red  
and white barriers blocking some  
downtown streets are not only
unsightly but in one case making
it almost impossible to find the  
large plaque erected for our
most unsung famous citizen
not lincoln not lindsay they are  
always in our face but robert  
fitzgerald springfield high school
grad harvard prof whose iliad
odyssey translations are world
known world used but try to
locate his history his home site on
jackson street you have to loop
twisty turny plus have considerable
luck to locate it should we install
blinking lights like steak and shake
