Garbage Truck Monster

    The garbage truck monster

    Roars up the street,

    Looking for garbage

    To pick up and eat.

    He stops at a can

    And gulps down his dinner.

    The foul-smelling mixture

    Goes into his “inner.”

    Bottles and boxes

    And cans disappear

    As he gnashes and smashes

    And grinds into gear.

    He growls and he howls,

    And I guess I know why—

    If I ate what he ate,

    I’m sure I would die!
