The Litterbug

PAPER (Crackle-Crackle)
CANS (Clatter-Clatter)
TRASH (Dump-Dump)
LITTERBUG (Toss and Throw)

God put bugs in this world for many reasons.
He made them to live in every kind of season.

But the pesky LITTERBUG with his PAPER and CAN,
was made through neglected TRASH by the foolish person.

To keep America beautiful, get rid of the LITTERBUG,
so beach goers can again lounge on a clean sandy rug.

Because of this pest, we must woller around,
In PAPER and CANS and TRASH all over the ground.

Just who are these LITTERBUGS who mess up our land?
Do you ever really see them toss that PAPER and CAN?

Quite often the LITTERBUG is a sneaky guy,
and at dumping his TRASH he’s oh so sly.

So most of the time it just appears everywhere,
As if it had dropped right out of thin air.

Could it be we are so used to throwing things here and there,
That we dump that PAPER and CAN without being aware?

Without even thinking when we toss TRASH and waste,
We could be an unconscious LITTERBUG in all our haste.

So when you unwrap that gum or small piece of candy,
Don’t throw the PAPER on the ground just ‘cause it’s handy.

Next time stop and think when a pop CAN you toss,
Cause if you’re a LITTERBUG, it’s also your loss.

So if every single person would take note of his habit,
That pesky LITTERBUG we could certainly nab it.

Then that terrible bug we would surely stamp out,
With no more PAPER or CANS or TRASH about.

To keep America beautiful, we must all do our part,
By taking care of our TRASH properly from the very start.
