OctPoWriMo 30

A reminder on the radio
In between New Wave goth obscurities
That tonight is mischief night

Which everyone in the car
Had forgotten was a thing
Is also a reminder of so many mistakes

Chief among these being
Someone threw paper towels
And toilet tissue all over the country

While some just let it happen
Now those with egg on their faces
Are claiming to be anti-toilet paper

When you know they’re the ones
Hoarding the multipacks
They bought back in March

While the rest of us are trying
With as many envelopes as necessary
Chiefly to clean up the mess

If not recycle all the waste
