THE POWER OF REDEMPTION


Through the windows of my car
You’ll see bottles and cans inside.
And to the recycling center today
They shall take a one way ride.

As I look at the current contents
Of my cluttered car’s interior
I must admit that my motive
Is, at best, rather ulterior.

In personal economic downturn
I behold each empties worth
Taking secondary satisfaction in that
I am helping to save the Earth.

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
