Inspired by Incident at “No Stopping” Sign
By David Smith September 3, 2009

no stopping

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
Disobedient to authority, my greatest fear
The elderly in danger, a passionate concern
Parking rules are in place, when will people learn?
