No Parking

No Parking

a sign says no parking
as if someone had a right


before this was a farm
there was a village
but it was taken

(from those who
called it their home)

something governments
might forget  about


but people lived here
before this was a farm

a flat area (field below a hill)
where a creek emptied
into a wide slow river


maybe we buy time
on the land we say
we own indeed

who owns this land
or anything in truth

what is and isn't ours
might be a subject
for some discussion


but then we own nothing
when we move on
to our next great thing
