He wanted to finish wiring

His N-scale layout inspiring…

His deciding, will

There be a bridge or a fill,

That question causing perspiring!

He’d always wanted a trestle,

Over a long boat vessel…

A snip of canal

With tow path trail,

Where ducks and swans might nestle.

But a fill would be easier done,

He’d never actually had one…

A truss bridge to staging

O’er a river raging,

Having TWO bridges might be overdone.

Not enough room, you see,

Accommodating jimcrackery…

Where to put the grist mill

For tourists’ good will,

Complicates it royally!
