Thank you for sending in - and Tweeting - your messages and rhymes:
Roses are red
Our mood is blue
We miss you? Fern Gray
We miss your tube
You miss our schools
Who’s in charge here?
Please not these fools Frank O'Mahoney
By politicos, forsaken
Our hearts, you have taken Oliver Waugh
Roses are red
I’m bluer than ever
When will they fix the bridge?
Probably never! Jane Crang
There was once a fine bridge over the river
In rain or shine it was a winner
Then inside it began to rust
And the foundations turned to dust
Now it’s shut we hope not forever GarethWallace
Oh, Hammersmith Bridge, I miss you, I do
You were part of my life when I could cross over you
Now you are shut, and the traffic is bad
Pollution has risen and this makes me sad
I long for the day that I can walk across
As without you in my life, I am at a loss
So I beg the politicians to start working together
To fix you so well that you’re mended forever
Until this day comes my life is on hold
I just hope it happens before I’m too old
To enjoy the pleasure crossing you can bring
As once I can do this, I won’t long for a thing Dionne Bridgeman
In eighteen twenty seven
Oh, it was heaven!
Hammersmith and Barnes
Opened their arms.
But in twenty twenty
Castelnau was empty
When Hammersmith Boror’
Created a furore.
Ferries will rule
Getting kids to school
But parents ask “When?”
“Twenty oh one. Perhaps then.”
“When’ll the Bridge be reope?”
“Maybe twenty oh six, we hope”
Say slow-coach TfL.
Crikey, that’s hell!
A west-side Temporary Road Bridge
Will relieve us from the current fridge.
And buses must cross
Just as soon as it’s poss! Tim Cunis
Labour is red
Tories are blue
The bridge in the middle
Doesn’t have a clue Fern Gray
The river ain’t wide
But it ebbs and flows
We can’t go on it, or over it
And that truly blows Frank O'Mahoney
The bridge we made red
As our lives are blue
To politicians who do nothing
Here’s a message for you Franc Vissers
