The Bridge rises

Literally

The huge counterweight

Hangs overhead

But not for long

This bridge is doomed

Little brother to the Golden Gate

Writ by the same engineers

Written off now

Other engineers think

Too expensive to fix

The mighty drill rig

Penetrates the bedrock

Laying the footings

A new bridge will stand on
