‘story bridge’

there’s a bridge here called story bridge
i bet it could tell a few
people go there to jump off
into the river below
when they want to end it all
i heard about one time
a woman left her kids in the car
stopped on the bridge in morning traffic
while she went and climbed over the rail
what made her decide that morning
was the day
what did she tell the kids?
“daddy will pick you up today”
