Consider This The Second-Last Straw Oh Night Beast
L. Dacre Tynan
Dear, contemptuously caustic collector,
How many times must you and
I play these confounding roles?
By your laborious thievery
And the spiteful chirruping of your dump-truck reversing
You have eroded all Tranquillity
We are very beeping mad
Your head office has been called repeatedly
We’ve sent scathing emails–twice to be exact
Surely you’ve been told
by your superiors
This is utter donkey work
for one to collect the trash at four in the morning
The bins have been chained shut–hang ‘who they belong to’
Let this be your first and last
A direct warning missive
Only upon your return after sun-up, they will be unlocked
This scrimmage ends tonight
Now leave silently from whence you came, Night Beast
In advance, yours arguably ~
One not at all afraid to start a dumpster fire.

(3) His background in Optical Mechanics, copywriting & content work give him a shallow basis on which he can call himself a writer...yet he does!
(4) This is his second piece of 'official' poetry (the first as the sole creator).
