The Garbage Disposal

Unusual things amuse a child.

Oh, down the disposal the refuse goes:
some bread, a piece of boiled moose,
a pizza crust, a chicken’s nose,
a candle and a roasted goose,
a pepper corn, a lizard’s leg,
a touch of sage, a table scrap,
a coffee bean, a scrambled egg,
a hot dog and a bottle cap,
a slice of pie, an orange rind,
an onion ring, a chop of pork,
an apple core, a frog’s behind,
a pickle and a salad fork,
a bag of flour, a can of peas,
a glass of milk, a chocolate bar,
a serving spoon, a chunk of cheese,
a hairpiece and a mason jar.

Enter a Mother … screamingWILD!

Unusual things amuse a child.
