NaPoWriMo 16: Emancipation on Briggate

Fortunately, the wheelie bin I saw on the move this morning off Briggate was not air-borne (just ground-borne – can something be ‘ground-borne’? I suppose earthworms and moles are…)


Hello NaPoWriMo-ers!

I’m looking forward to trying the prompt later and gobbledegook-ing some poetry not-in-translation…

But a silly moment produced a silly poem this morning, so here it is:

Emancipation on Briggate

or, The Wind Creates a Performance Action around the Theme of Waste

In a narrow shopping alley, I witnessed earlier today

A brave wee wheelie-bin, just scampering away:

Quoth the receptacle, gambolling across the floor,

“I shall be free of your rubbish forevermore!”

(But alas, just moments later, an overall ensnared the bin.

The moral: nevermore waste a second of freedom – ever, ever again.)
