Dealing with the monolith (Public Works) that plans ‘improvements’ for us, the public, is no walk in the park- believe me.

Kicked To The Kerb.

I walked out with my keys and surveyed our road-coned street
And wondered- yet again- when these works will be complete,
A note on my windscreen informed me in no uncertain terms
The Council will fine me for parking over THEIR fine berms.

With contractors gear and silly diggers blocking my accessway
Where is a displaced irate rate-payer supposed to park, pray?

My observations show the Council work has been painfully slow,
NOW the Parking Department are swift to tell me where I can go,
So, if by some miracle a Council mower should ever come to pass
I’ll be more than happy to hop in the Holden and get off the grass.
