Inspired by Incident at “No Stopping” Sign

By David Smith September 3, 2009

 

A congested street with traffic galore

Enforcing parking

What I do it for

An elderly woman crosses the street

With walker in hand as she shuffles her feet.

Think of my mom as I feel so sad.

Alone, crossing the street, without my dad.

Unsupervised and frail; as she gets out of a van

The driver leaves, fast as she can.

A busy street and paid parking at rear.

Disobedience to authority, my greatest fear.

The elderly in danger, a passionate concern;

Parking rules are in place,

When will caregivers learn?
