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!
