Garbage...... - Poem by Mary Nagy

It's time to take the garbage out
to pile beside the street.
It symbolizes what we've done
for people we won't meet.

They see the pile of garbage
and wonder ''What the heck! ''
''How do they get so much darn trash? ''
''It might just cause a wreck! ''

But that won't stop their looking
and driving by r e a l s l o w...
We might be tossing something good
out this week ya never know!

    This one gave me a chuckle Mary, It's amazing what other people will go for, things that you have chucked out as worthless. Loved this write. A story in itself for sure. Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply
