Poetry "I Need A Garbage Man In My Life"


Yvonne Szymczak

I need a garbage man in my life
The kind that’s not afraid to flip a can
And lets the combined trash juices run down his leg
Without a flinch, or even a thought
For the need of a baby wipe or a shower

The kind that can endure all the dirty things you don’t want to see anymore

The kind of person who will put the things you needed once, and don’t need no more
Take it out your door
And this dirty middle-man will meet it at the curb

This dirty business – no handshakes here
Just flies buzzing through your ears

I need a garbage man in my life
That good old public service rock and roll

Thanks for viewing our website, everyone. My search engine optimization tool is telling me that I need to write more words than I so far have in order for Google to consider this post as a legitimate entry into my blog. Perhaps if I write a stream-of-counciousness paragraph such as this one I can get the word total to reach 300, which is apparently what is needed. It’s too bad I can’t just count he more than 5000 words I wrote recently on transportation towards my total for this blog. SEO also wants there to be external links to other sites. So here are a few external links to other sites. Here is a link to Zombo.com. Oh man, they even want me to put keywords, like “poetry”, “Backseat Detroit”, “Jerome Cavanaugh”, “Sussex”, “Zombo” and “Varese” in here. Sheesh.
