How Steep is Steep?

 

 

steep 1

Laser dots
Ten metres apart
Were the start

Of when it happened
Baldwin Street Dunedin
Was flattened

By the Men of Harlech
Whose angle was more acute
On the Welsh route
At Forde Pen Llech

Thirty five degrees is high
Reaching to the sky

But thirty seven
Takes you to heaven

Resulting in being unfurled
As the steepest street in the world
