Where Have all the Billboards Gone?
Inspired by songs like "Where Do the Children Play?" by Cat Stevens. I thought it would be fun to reverse the main idea.
I remember when this street was a perfect mess
an excess of garbage and litter and all the detritus
of human existence:
shards of glass, discarded crap, hungry rats
cigarette butts and boarded-up storefronts
And oh how those billboards towered majestically
over everything and we
knew just where to go for shady lawyers
and shoddy doctors, easy credit and sleazy
debt collectors, junk food and french fried potatoes
Now they've torn everything down and turned it into a park
it's green and full of trees and flowers and ladies
pushing strollers and toddlers and dogs frolicking
amid the birds and the bees
But I miss the billboards and garbage
cos I'm - guess who? Oscar the Grouch
