Civil War

Houses on a narrow street
With many a shiny car
Is just the perfect recipe
For an English Civil War.

In some streets it's OK to take
Your next-door neighbour's space;
In others, if you do the same
You will be in disgrace.

So even if you LOVE that house
Just check before you buy,
If it's in a narrow street,
WHICH parking rules apply!

Oh, Boston's parking-space wars, especially after snowstorms, are legendary!

i love this. parking in Los Angeles is equally challenging, but not half so poetic!
