Recycling bin in the parking lot
“RECYCLED PAPER,” says the bin,
But oh! Such stuff they’re tossin’ in!
Despite “NO CARDBOARD” clearly stated,
Never miss a local story.
With just such boxes bin is weighted.
And phone books? Yes, they’re banned as well;
Yet by the dozens here they dwell.
And lastly on this jumbled scene
We see a stained old mattress lean.
In fairness, though, don’t blame or smear
The muttonhead who left it here,
Who must’ve thought this bin just fine;
It doesn’t have ‘NO MATTRESS” sign!
