Is The Bin Out?

Stretching and yawning I wake from my sleep
A new day is dawning – beep – crash – bang – beep
That God awful sound comes NOT from within
‘tis the noise of the truck that empties the bin

Reality hits me, “For Christ sake”, I shout!
“Did we forget to put our bin out”?
I leap from the bed and tear back the blind
Our bin has not moved, they’ve left it behind

I pull on some knickers and throw on a vest
There’s not enough time to get properly dressed
Reservations abandoned, I run to the door
Braless and shoeless, this is now war!

My tits in a tangle, as feet hit the ground
I charge at the bin and spin it around
Grab hold of the handle and pull with my might
The wheels are in motion and I’ve taken flight

Through panda eyes squinting, I spy the truck
Descending down hill with everyone’s muck
My bin overtakes me, hang on for dear life
(I get myself into some very strange strife)

Motorists honk me as I fly through the air
Leaves and bugs stab at my wild mess of hair
I’m picking up speed now advancing quite fast
I finally make it and reach them at last

I grind to halt but find I am struck dumb
‘cause my knickers are lost right up my bum
The guy’s on the truck stare in amazement
As I stand adjusting myself on the pavement

Regaining composure I glare with contempt
But they still take my bin and remove its content
Silently seething I turn to withdraw
And then they began with their rip-hooting roar

Why were they laughing and splitting their sides?
Then all became clear when I realized
My knickers were printed in bold on the rear
With words that said simply “Are The Bins Out Dear”?

Is The Bin Out?
