Free Downtown Parking On Fridays!

The Meter Sez,

"What? You think I'll talk?
I'll never say a word.
My best advice:
Read each word twice
to be sure of what you heard.
Don't try to ignore me
or I'll call a cop
and when he gets finished
you'll wish you'd not stopped."

Investment Advice From Parking Meters?

I got an insider investment tip from a parking meter today and thought I would share.

How To Make The Big Bucks

Like any parking meter will tell you,
the cash is in the tips
but change is where it all adds up
to make accountants flip.
Invest in parking meters
We promise you'll do great.
We work the longest hours
and never are we late.

Low Down No Count No Space Parking Lot Blues

That's right, while most of America vacations the parking problems simply move from our cities to our recreational areas while everyone in the nation ignores the fact that if every car and truck in America were to be parked all at once the streets and highways would be forever blocked with parked cars and trucks. And with that I bring you today's installment of Poems By Parking Meters, Parking Meter Poetry.

Parkin' Meter Blues

Parking meters everywhere
but not a slot for you.
You ride 'n ride from side to side
you got the parkin' meter blues.
Had you given yourself more time
you could have beat the bunch
but as the parking meters stand
you'll be ridin' until lunch.

And you forgot to bring any change.

Free Parking After 6 PM, Weekends And Holidays

My phone has been ringing off the hook today as parking meters from around the world rush to submit their parking meter poems leaving me with but one question-- how do they dial?

Off With Their Heads

"Off with their heads!
Off with their heads!"
I hear the people cry
but I'm not going anywhere
so don't you even try.

Okay, so nobody paid to be a sponsor, big deal.
