Every week the garbage leaks!
Here's a poem to help speakers of English address articulation difficulties with /L/ and /R/ sounds.
Every week the garbage leaks,
begins to reek and makes me weak.
In double bags I like it wrapped,
but still it leaks on to my lap.
And when I carry it to the curb
the neighbours stare, it is absurd!
It leaves a smelly liquid trail
that's really slippery and makes one frail.
They say some things that are quite rude
(It's lucky I'm not likewise lewd!)
Courage I have and do not lack
I proudly carry it on a rack.
To the curb I take the muck
every week for the garbage truck.
What's in the bag to make it reek?
Now that's a secret I can not leak!
World's Best Jobs!
