Of many a surround, complexities be found Containers lying moist, a decision or a choice Yet further on afield, a glance at orange peel Paper, plastic, food, piles amass of tin

Remnant turning raw, a rotten eyesore Rustling wind o’ waste, left in sudden haste The mice can now compete, with litter in the street Paper, plastic, food, piles amass of tin

Fines there are to pay, a shoddy vast array The circling of sweeps, creating cleaner streets A clearer road to pave, recycling can be saved Paper, plastic, food, piles amass of tin

Creatures here collide, scraps of the roadside Watchers not around, fly-tipping on waste ground Yet no-one there to blame, deserted country lane Paper, plastic, food, piles amass of tin

Hazards in the town, where shops are to be found The mess that will not fade, nor biodegrade Danger near the farm, creatures brought to harm Paper, plastic, food, piles amass of tin

Discarded fishing nets, caught around there necks Trapped in like a pen, cannot get out again The choices of today, can create a way Paper, plastic, food, find the nearest bin!
