People in Parks

 People in Parks
 What a crazy idea!
 User pays,
 Buildings stay
 Businesses,
 Forty storeys
 Sound construction
 Quirky's right!
 Better concrete policed by tasers
 Than wind through leaves
 Better glass than grass.
 Silly me, more tunnels
 Than child swings
 Big trucks go-between bridges
 Grind down bicycle riders
 Moving goods, jobs and property
 Rates pay for parks
 Plovers in parks
 Sound their complaint
 At sundown
 Before sleeping rough
 In this unfinished place
