He’s sniffing through the inner zone;
he wants to catch you all alone.
Dare you break the madman’s rules?
Don’t you go and break his tools.
Better get your permit out –
save yourself without a shout!
If you want to be released,
you’ll need to find the golden fleece.
Go and clamp his best toy car –
bet his parts’ll drop afar!

Source: This news article, brought back to mind a time when, as a student, my own car was clamped (during the holidays) for having the audacity to park in an ’empty’ car park which, unbeknown to me, was in a forbidden zone (designated specifically for the use of the non-present academic staff). This led me to retrieve and publish, the lyrics I wrote, at that time, as a vent for my fury.
