I'm A Bin

I'm a bin
Drop yer litter in
The bottles banging make a din
But I'm mad for it
It ain't a sin.

Drop in yer needles
But don't drop the ball
Coz I'm a bin
And I've seen it all. 

The Smiths or the Roses?
Which legends are finer?
I'm a bin
With a thick black liner

"Ich bin bin"
It's German you plank!
But I'm not a German
I'm a bin
And a Manc.

- composed March 2017

This poem was inspired by the new bins in God's own city of Manchester. If you are from the council and would like to use the poem please leave a comment below.
