Suppose there were no rules in the parks? Anything could happen–public indecency, everyday, right there and exposed to our eyes.
I discovered that we have rules in our parks and they’re very easy to understand. I recently developed some film–a roll from several months ago that I’d forgotten. One photo captures a modern sort of rosetta stone on public park behaviour,
I think I can explain the sign thus:
- No rollerblading
- No skateboarding
- No cars
- No bicycles
- No dogs
- No mating birds
A drastic measure maybe, but not so different from countries that have chosen to ban the reproduction of certain plants. In any case, I expect scofflaws will take flight the moment police try to enforce the ban.
It’s strictly non aux oiseaux.
