Whose Mad Scheme

Big Blue Bin

Whose Mad Scheme?

 

Whose mad scheme

was this? Right on

Christmas time, to

hire a skip and make

a clean sweep

of clearing trees,

privet in the main,

which is a weed here;

and climbers

and wandering jew

and jasmine gone crazy

and which for so long had

had control of big

areas of the yard.

 

This big blue monster –

nine cubic metre capacity

sits down the driveway,

half full already and with

five more days before

pick up.

 

They say

it is going to rain heavily

on Monday all of which

will add to a chargeable weight.

Farmers, orchards

and agriculturalists may be crying

out for rain: but not me. I pray

for the fine and not too hot

weather. Whose mad scheme?
