It is reported that residents of Bath are objecting to having large wheelie bins which bespoil their attractive Georgian architecture.

The residents of Bath have said,
Only over their bodies dead,
Will they accept big wheelie bins,
In which to put their trash and tins.

The bins just simply do not go,
With Georgian architecture so,
A smaller version ought to fit,
And that would be the end of it.

The Council, though, says, “No can do.
We’re limiting the bins to two.
And though they are quite big, it’s true,
We can supply in any hue.

And there are patterns, brick or stone,
Just say which you would like to own;
The right one will look very smart,
While waiting there for our dustcart.

And when you have them don’t despair,
They will be bins without compare,
And after that, just one more thing –
We need to talk recycling!”
