Day 24 prompt: garbage
Gus galloped down Green Street on garbage day
Weaving round waste cans that got in his way
Tripped on a Tonka truck toting some tweezers
And fell on the footpath facing a freezer.
While plucking out pebbles poked into his palms,
The boy bumped a big basket of brown bonbons
Sending them spiraling down by his shoe string.
The curious cuss considered consuming
Merely a morsel – might be mallow or mint.
What harm would that hold? Alas, he missed a hint.
