Once upon a time

In a little college town

There was a major avenue

That people drove around

--

It carried folks out east and west

But sometimes, it is claimed

That it was quite confusing and

Some said it was misnamed

--

Cuz though the road is widely used

It’s hard to contemplate

Why the street signs all say “Circle”

When it mostly is quite straight

--

It goes from Hewlett-Packard

Westward up to Witham Hill

Where the traffic hits a stop sign

And turns to standing still

--

That all will change in just a bit

Construction’s almost done

Extending Circle Boulevard

On down to Harrison

--

So then the road will curve, you know

And when they make new maps

Let’s pick a name that’s apropos

“Semi-Circle” now perhaps?
