Green Machine

The Green Machines in town

by B.F. Kirkham

Riding on through a northern street

Picking up the plastics and paper so neat

four urban cowboys – you’re in for a treat

The Green Machines in town

Bundling paper you would throw away

Boxing the plastics you would let go astray

and turning them into stuff – so the kids can play

The Green Machines in town

Driving down streets as quiet as can be

powered by Veggies or a battery

and refueled by solar while the ops have their tea

The Green Machines in town

The best thing about it ? Its clean Energy

and when using the veg fuel – its mostly free

so its saving the planet (or occasional tree)

The Green Machines in town

So on early mornings – its beating the sun

and its crew are loading it up as one

whether its paper (blue) or glass/plastics (brown)

you’ll recognize the almost familiar sound….

Camera used : Nikon D3100 with 50mm Lens

Sat in the toolshed (my workspace, where i compose this blog)

I took this photo in response to the photo challenge Lines as theres an awful lot of them in it.

with the feathered friends elsewhere – i saw the lines of solar panels on the roof – all set out in formation

then there’s the lines of branches in the tree behind the house

Lines of tiles lining the roof in very tidy order

and last but not least the lines of bricks in the end wall of the semi detached house
