Kitchen Bin Metaphor
and post notes and photos about your poem like Nina Parmenter.
Stop laughing at me, kitchen bin,
like some too-clever metaphor,
I push you down, I pile stuff in -
squish-squash - what harm a little more?
Like karma on a coiled spring,
my retribution lies in store,
for when I try to tie the strings
and pull the bag, with a guffaw
you spill your guts! Banana skins,
old teabags, pork rind, apple cores
and plastic wrap lie dribbling
and festering upon the floor!
The moral: let’s not overstuff
our bags - when we have had enough,
we need to purge the junk inside...
There! Metaphor! You satisfied?!
