It’s difficult to share a garbage bin –
inhabitants each have disposal views.
Whenever someone vacates or moves in,
they tend to cram and otherwise abuse
the needs of other residents. And worse
than what is meant for landfill, is the stuff
that occupies recycle bins – the curse
of boxes that are not collapsed enough.
Exasperation most of us have felt,
but yesterday’s misdeeds went far beyond
the normal rude behavior. I was dealt
a brimming can that drove me to respond.
But first I had to stand in rain and sort
their trash, before I griped my stern retort.
