Garbage Man

I like taking out the garbage

It’s something I do every day.

Sometimes I feel

That the smell is unreal

But I really have to do it anyway.

It’s something that’s stated in your marriage licence

I bet you didn’t read the small print.

The man gets to take out the garbage each night

While the women may go shopping till he’s skint.

I love taking out the garbage

It means I get two minutes to myself.

Just me and the cats and a couple of rats

It’s really quite good for my health.

There’s not much more to say about the garbage

It’s a sport that involves mostly men.

If you perfect your aim

You can’t really be blamed

For missing the dumpster now and then. © 2017 by Steve Taite
