Another holiday is through.

I'm reminded what school should do:

Study of trash, what it's due to,

And its effect on the world view.


To begin, we must define it,

Attributes that we assign it,

Show the students how to find it,

So that they all can decline it


Then we move to identify,

The excess that exemplifies,

A modern life diversified,

The beauty we now sacrifice.


The goal is a final outcome

That warns students not to succumb

To the trash that they would become

If they continue to play dumb.


For, when the education ends,

You'd understand how trash ascends:

Trash left behind is better than

The gross bins that drag it all in.
