Dumping Our Sumps
Our garbage bin is full to the top
And overflowing with filthy slop
Contaminated dirt is spilling onto the tarmacs
Nuclear waste is seeping through the cracks
Dead batteries melt into poisonous wax
As empty aerosol cans add to our air’s death tax
Plastic bags are filled with grubby plastic packs
Eventually resurfacing as our oceans strangulation traps
Where do we dump our polluted fallout?
When will it be time to put the garbage out?
