Trash Cans



Used and abused

even thrown when confused

the trash can takes it’s all

no prejudice no benefits


through the sun through the rain

the ugly and mundane

the trash can endures it all

always taking the fall


all the memories amassed

all it’s emotions overcast

the trash can in all its solitude

eternally emptied in the multitude


with all the trophies and groceries

the daisies and royalties

a place where all things end

and broken swords are sent


reused and misused

bruised and abused

the trash can takes it all

no prejudice no benefits
