For the people of Westborough - and beyond, and with apologies to Paul Simon for the satire - but I couldn't resist!

Feeling weary, you’re driving home
It’s been a long hard week, but it’s finally over
It’s Friday now, you’re back in town,
Then traffic starts to slow

The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
Once again was struck
The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
Has a truck that’s stuck

Come on really, How can it be?
The flashing lights are on how can they not see?
And this goes on, time after freakin’ time
Why don’t they read the signs:

The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
Makes me lose my mind
The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
Happens every time

Now a month has passed, the weather’s fine
And I can clearly see the Basse Passerelle sign
But can it be,
That trucker up ahead,
My god, he’s going to try
The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
It’s just not that high
The rail bridge crossing over E. Main Street
Makes me want to cry
