I used to take my handy scooter
It was a real hooty tooter
When rubbish day came around
I’d bag it up tightly bound
Scoot down the sidewalk
When no one’s around
Listen to the bag drag on the ground.
Of course I was careful not to abuse
The rules of the complex on refuse.
I wrapped it soundly so nothing should leak
Used heavy bags so nothing would reek.
Others around just put anything there
Dog-do, even old stinky arm chairs.
Now I only have a chair that I roll
Going to the dumpster takes its toll
It’s hard to hold a big bag with your knees
So ask the grandkids would they please
Most of the time they do it for me
But now a problem…the Christmas tree!
