Smarter Parking Meters Learn Second Language

Parking Meters On Java

"I'm anxious," the young meter said,
"I've not got time to wait
perched atop this stupid pole,
the parkers, always late.
That empty space, I cannot stand,
there should be cars to fill it.
I've got a boss like everyone
and he wants me to bill it."

And so it is, parking meters get smarter and Java becomes the language they speak but to me they speak American and I publish their Parking Meter Poetry for all the world to see.

Dead On Arrival

Evil Parking Meters?

Please don't call me evil
for I'm only doing my part.
I don't control the fee.
I don't control the art.
I'm just a parking meter
bound to stand here 'till I die.
And if you cast me evil
the backlash makes me cry.

And that wraps up tonight's edition of PMN, Parking Meter News.

Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

Angry Parking Meters Protest Royal Mint!

For A Few Measly Pounds

How can you expect us to do our jobs
when the money, it won't fit?
The way you toss about the coin,
you'd think you are the mint.
But we still have to make our way
and we don't think it's fair
to make us stand without our pay
in the frigid winter air.
