Bin Trouble


I was walking down Granby Street

When I heard a voice

Calling me over

The voice seemed to be coming from

Inside the bin

And against my better judgement

I pushed my head through the small hole

To get a better look you understand

Now I’ve always had big ears

Pushing my head through was easy

But when I tried to pull my head out

Well my ears

Couldn’t do it

It was then that I heard giggling

And the sound of footsteps running from the bin

They must’ve hidden behind it

Bloody kids!
