Built for Juscelino Kubitschek,*
This bridge has a truly high-tech spec,
Built in Brasilia, across Lake Paranoa,
It’s sinuous and serpentine, just like a boa,
Made of concrete and steel, it has grandeur and style,
And extends over the water for more than half a mile.
Each arch faces a different way,
Presidential Drive, a national mainstay.

*President 1956-1961
