What does your letterbox eat?
Mine used to survive
on a sparse diet of envelopes.
It was healthy.
Now, it gets force-fed with flyers
from local fast food places
which it spews at once
onto my doormat,
And catalogues? They're
enough to give any door indigestion
as it tries to swallow their feast
of expensive purse-tempting pages.
But the menu alternates on lean days
with thin, pleading, plastic sacks
which expect a throw away
generation to feed unwanted items
to this charity, or that good cause.
So while I and my letterbox
are bombarded with ”Buy, buy, buy!”
the plastic bags keep coming.
I think I'll link this to Poetry Pantry... for some reason, all the Toads chose to ignore it last Monday...
