Dualling at Temple
Whilst in the Land of Nod last week
I had the oddest dream.
I met a man from Camelot
About the Euro-lottery scheme.
He said a ticket bought in Stevenage
Six months ago had won
A prize of sixty four million pounds!
Wow! A truly handsome sum!
Then, in that dream I heard
A shout “I think it’s mine!”
Thus began a frantic ticket search
“I’m sure I’ve won, I have but little time!”
‘Twas then this extraordinary vision
Took a most unusual turn.
For our ‘winner’ went to County Hall
And said “To whom it might concern..!”
“I’m willing to donate
The bulk of all these Euro millions
Towards the cost of dualling
The Chivvy Carland road ‘cos it’s a hilly ‘un”
And so, in this peculiar dream
A Cornish wish was granted.
We all have driven Cross to Cross
And on frustrating stop-go journeys ranted.
Then I awoke from slumber
To hear Lazzer announce on air
That dualling indeed was promised.
Alas, not Chivvy, but elsewhere.
Yes, the pinchpoint up at Temple
Is going to be dualled.
That will help save many damaged lives.
And that ticket? Wrong numbers! Cruel!
So we’ll have to wait a little more
To achieve that Chivvy mission.
Keep your eyes on that dualling target.
Set your sights on a 2020 vision!
