A Varmint Put My Trash Cans All Asunder

Devouring garbage as if fleetest time
would keep tastiest morsels from the slow,
she quickly ripped sharp claws through pulp and rind;
her bandit mask hid all but black eyes glow.

Be glad my heart is kind, you furry beast,
I stand amazed at your concentration
on leavings of my best reduced to least;
your caviar mere parings I have shunned.

We would be wise to give an added thought
to what we cast aside in reckless haste.
No matter who we are or what we ought,
our greatest treasure is another’s waste.

So if nothing more is gained from my plight,
Dear citizens, please tie your garbage tight.
