Tales from Brunz Part 1, presented by the Save Brunz Alliance:
On the beach a dog turd steams in the sun
And the Earth Mother in new 600 dollar shoes
Treads it into the sand and says ‘its organic matter’
And pushes her pram through the dunes.
As the panicked wallaby family gets chased
By more canines well off the leash
Rampaging through a protected reserve
That’s not on the list for ‘dog beach’.
The Earth Mother says,
‘They did the same thing yesterday, I won’t be bringing them back’
And her friend nods his head agreeing,
‘Yes, this place isn’t up to scratch’. (huh?)
And they tie the black plastic poo bags to a fence
because the bin is 50 feet away
and tell me to get stuffed when I point it out
load the car up and drive into the day…..
