Pothole poetry competition

Motorists have been getting creative with their words and come up with some poems describing the state of British roads

The competition, run by www.potholes.co.uk, a website dedicated to finding and reporting potholes, had three winners who each submitted their 140 character long prose via twitter.

“When almost dusk & light turns grey, potholes greedily grasp their prey. Axles, tyres, paint are theirs, once you’ve trespassed in their lairs.” Stuart Ellison-Smith, of Canterbury

“I hit a pothole, car went lame, not to blame, made a claim, nothing came, crying shame I hit a pothole.” Karen Tolhurst, of Kent

“It’s amazing don’t you think, that you don’t have to drive or drink, to test your mettle skill and soul, you just need one big round pothole.” Sean Gibson, of London
