dVerse Poets Quadrille – Bother

***

What a bother picking up

The paper mask, the coffee cup

Toss it, it’s had its use

Now it’s just a piece of refuse

Why bother to use a trash receptacle

Leave it as another careless spectacle

Soon it will join another

Why bother?

  1. It saddens me so to see litter tossed out on the road. Luckily we have a great volunteer organization in Portland called SOLV to help clean up our streets when this happens.
    I like how you wrote a poem to increase awareness of a problem.
