Free Parking Friday Only

Greensboro, NC-- Downtown residents and visitors alike are amazed to discover parking meters reciting poetry today. To get to the bottom of the story I interviewed a parking meter this afternoon who told me a poem about free downtown parking so I thought I'd share the parking meter's poetry for everyone to see.

With the meter's permission of course.

No One Parks For Free


Don't have any change?
You're down on your luck:
what once was a quarter
will cost you 5 bucks.

The parking meter preferred that I not revel his her its? name, saying downtown was already too crowded with too many people, too many cars, and not enough metered parking. And too many people who were unwilling to pay parking meters, who already work for less than minimum wage in most instances.
