Poles Still Living In Bondage

It's true, despite the many wars and the millions of innocent lives lost, many have never been freed.

Crying For Parking

It's hard earning your living," the meter said,
"with a pole stuck up your butt.
I could have been a traffic light.
I guess I must be nuts.
I could have been a fire escape--
get paid for going down
but instead I became a parking meter
anchored to the ground."

And as I walked away I thought I heard her cry.

And so it is with this sad poem I usher in yet another return of Parking Meter Poetry-- the only poetry written exclusively from atop poles.

Brought to you by free parking everywhere.
