Gone to Waste

The monumental trash bin
A testament to waste
Full of remnants now discarded
Once thought of as good taste
They stand there in my garden
An extension of my palace
On hot days smelly rancid
Life's plastic poisoned chalice
If they could speak they'd tell us
About the stuff we throw away
Like unnecessary packaging
Sucking blood from hard earned pay

  1. Ahh yes...the life of a wheelie bin is hard, given all the junk we chuck in them...Quite sad really, the life of the unloved wheelie bin!.....You captured that sentiment rather well, my well as our own disregard for all that we waste...
