No Parking!

At first glance, the lovely Arctic town symbolized perfection

Rambling streets, cute churches, musical hills, nothing required any correction

Visitors to the town saw its beauty, and were awe-struck, their jaws open wide

But what they did not realize was that this beauty had a terribly dark other side

 

For the town, despite all its beauteous glory, was extremely small

Which would normally be fine, for that is what made it so pretty after all

But the ambitions of the people of this town were exactly the opposite

And the town was proving to be too small for those ambitions to fit

 

So when they realized that they needed more space

The people put up these signs at every possible public place

And now, after a hard day’s work, the seagulls,

The butterflies,

And the flying fish,

Had no place left to sit and relax in peace

For each open space in the town was now packed with iron monsters like these
