Down at The Park

Down at the park

no biking
no spitting
no littering
no loitering

no children
no running
no walking
no skipping

no singing
no sweating
no flipping
no picnicking 

no body

I used to live in a town where you were allowed to jog as long as you didn’t sweat.  Anything perspiration-related in public was forbidden.

    Sounds like no (park)ing, too. I love the line, 'no body'...great ending.

    There are lots of strange laws... kinda makes you wonder what strange creatures dwell in wo/men's minds... Love, Terry

    and that was without even jogging, but just sitting in the Iowa humidity.

    OMG, are you kidding me?? I would have been expelled from your town then. I sweated so bad as a kid, it went all the way under my arm halfway to my waist!!
