The Lessons of Bridgegate

Coming to terms with an unnecessary toll

There’s a toll bridge in New Jersey
that may cost a governor
a toll much more than what most drivers pay.
For the toll Bridgegate may levy
could destroy Chris Christie’s dreams
all because his thoughtless staffers misbehaved.

And the moral of this lesson
is to choose our colleagues well.
Those with whom we work can undermine our goals.
Building trust that spans the chasm
of our disconnected lives
can alleviate the price of unseen tolls.
