Nothing lasts forever

August 1, 2007 during rush hour traffic, Interstate 35 W. Bridge collapsed in Minneapolis, MN over the Mississippi River. Dozens of vehicles plummeted into the river; 4 dead, 79 injured and 20 missing. Repairs were being made on the bridge at the same time it collapsed.

In just a few years
You’ve driven your car
Too many miles
You fear to go far

Trade it in
Buy something new
A car that’s red
Or one that’s blue

It’s obsolete
You need to update
Your home PC
You can not wait

How long will they last
If one of them breaks
Aside you’ll cast

Replace it instead
Get something new
It’s not very old
But why make do

What was the cause
That bridge collapsed
Though so much traffic
And time elapsed

Forever and ever
What made you think
That bridge would last
And never sink
