Refuse

Salford, 22nd January 2020

#fowc #refuse

Two definitions for this word fandango’s provided – so I cobbled them together in this

feel free to comment.

Recycling Refuse!

Refusing to recycle your rubbish ?

expect a spot of bother

for if you don’t follow the bin men’s advice

until you do so, the bin will just

sit there – full to the brim of stuff that should be turned into something else

expect an extra invoice when they send a bigger rubbish truck!

They said it was cleaner than coal

so the men in charge let them build it

starting off small

but then expanding across the greenbelt

the men at the power grid – overjoyed

as coal took a back seat to cleaner energy

the money rolled in

but nobody noticed – the barrels building up

toxic legacy hidden behind trees

till a concrete tomb was dug down below

and the barrels that ticked and clicked

found a new home below till solutions were found.
