my friend takes her morning walk on lake services road she carries sacks and today picked up beer cans pop cans beer bottles plastic bottles plastic straws  
pop cups plastic cups coffee cups coffee mugs newspaper gum paper mcdonald’s paper cigarette packs one left sneaker orange and purple adult size and a rusty belt buckle she left three bags at the lake services gate too heavy to carry home she knows her cwlp friends will dispose of them tomorrow she’ll walk the other side I think it’s time she says for a new litter awareness program in the schools
