PostSubject: Recyclemania   May 30th 2012, 8:36 pm


You know what? I am becoming a little jaded
My enthusiasm for recycling has gradualy faded
I am doing my best, Just likel the rest
All my rubbish is sorted and graded.

I have boxes for paper, wrappers and mags
But not yellow pages which must go in bags
Plastic bottles, washed, cardboard boxes, squashed
Textiles tied up labelled “Rags”.

Boxes for cans, boxes for plastic
Boxes for knickers but remove the elastic
Boxes for foil cleaned of all oil
The whole thing is simply fantastic.

No paint, no solvents or batteries
No dismembered bodies or products from catteries
No aerosol cans or parts from old vans
No medical specimens of anatomies.

Boxes for bottles without corks and content
No grannies ashes however well meant
No builder’s rubble or you’ll be in trouble
In fact nothing to do with cement.

Special boxes for food waste composting
Lined with Bio-degradable bags, whatever they’re costing
You can buy compost back it comes in a sack
To be honest it simply disgusting.

So one day when the bin man came round
He told me a fact quite profound
“When we take it from here, and I’m being sincere
It ‘s all tipped in a hole in the ground”.

Man, your the best!! I once wrote a parody of the Queen song "Bicycle" called "Recycle Bins" and I touched briefly on these subjects but nothing like you have done! So... if you don't recycle them, just what do you do with the left over medical specimans of anatomies? and Granny's ashes.. well, I'm sure there is a poem in that concept just waiting to be written..

LOVED this my friend!

Daniel, I have heard (but never tried) that cremation ashes make a very passable oxtail soup.

No dismembered bodies or products from catteries ?

I'm beginning to think that don't just write poetry in your pass time.... Absolutely adored this anyway, EXALT.


Ps. Funny signature - I like it. Very Happy
