The stone bridge was around for century's or more.
It held foot soldiers, horses and carts in days of yore.
Now it’s cars and trucks, a common sight you saw.
One night with no fright a stone fell out of sight.
Next day two stones dislodged and fell away.
More stones fell, why you just couldn’t tell.
Stones in time dislodged without reason or rhyme.
If an engineer looked at the bridges fate.
He’d know the bridge had a used-by-date.
But cars and trucks just went their way.
Then without a prompt the old bridge just fell away.

There's a bridge I cross regularly on the way home from work but I think I might have to change my route after reading this! :-)))))

Oops sorry but yes you hope some engineer has a serious look at all these bridges and occasionally says "yep...get the concrete out".
