Backlane Blues

The City of Winnipeg tried something about ten years ago. They put dumpsters up and down the back lanes of the less affluent districts of our fair city. They called it a rehabilitative effort to train us delinquents how to keep our city clean. Needless to say it was not a total success and they have been removed to dumpster heaven.

Rehabilitative endeavors
The Stonehedge of the core
What our city fathers fathomed
Could we ask for more?

Green monsters of the back lanes
Lunging out at cars
Going up in glorious flames
For those who would be stars

So here we all must gather
To give our last just dues
To all those battered relics
Where we put our pee-us

Oh garbage truck I pray
Please come and make my day
The stench is friggin crazy
And the flies are in my way
