SONG OF THE RECYCLING BIN
(A takeoff on The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus)

Give me your tired, your poor,
your old and threadbare
yearning to be saved,
the wretched refuse of this
teeming land.

Send me plastic,
paper, metal, cloth,
and more.
I lift my lid
beside each garbage can!

  Rosalie Calabrese
