13 ways to love your litter bin

This ThursdayThirteen is a tribute to Paul Simon, modeled after his 50 ways to leave your lover. My version is about the plastic bins that laundry soap and cat litter come in.

We all have a chore

That we abhor

But we ignore

The 13 ways to love your litter bin.

They stack up high

The more litter we buy

Why don't we try

13 ways to love your litter bin.

Just toss in the trash, lass

Scoop in the poop, Rupe

Put it out for the trash man, Stan

And then you'll be free.

When it's all gone, John

Just bring it along

And save at the store, Lor

To get yourself free.

Wash it out well, Nell

Toss in the toys, Joy

Throw in the bills, Jill

Just listen to me.

Stand by this rule, Jewel

And then you'll be cool

Decorate it up fine, Devine

And then you will see.

Chuck in the weeds, Eve

Carry the water, Roger

Collect the rags, Greg

And you will be free.

Turn on its side, bride

Your cat will hide.

There's 13 ways to love your litter bin.
