All Hail the Bin Emptiers

It’s good they empty bins on holidays,
because we missed the service here all week.
The water workers blocked the block both ways,
when we had extra garbage from the slobs
who occupied upstairs, who said the phrase
“I’m sorry” glibly while they never shared
facilities or fairness all their stays.
Their passive-irresponsible technique
was toxic. Now it’s garbage men we praise.

(Magic 9)
