Just a few inches more and I would have been in the trash can.

THE TRASH CAN!

I never wanted to be part of a random heap –
Among discarded Starbucks.

No no…this is not right!
I am meant to become part of the earth, not trapped in a bag.
Why delay my decay any longer by lining us up in rows?
Please do me the favor of allowing me to become one with the soil again!
