Title: Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout


1
Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout
  • Would not take the garbage out
  • By Shel Silverstein

2
Shed wash the dishes and scrub the pans
3
Cook the yams and spice the hams
4
And though her parents would scream and shout
5
She would not take the garbage out
6
And so it piled up to the ceiling
7
Coffee Grounds
8
Potato Peelings
9
Brown Bananas and Rotten Peas
10
Chunks of sour cottage cheese
11
It filled the can, it covered the floor
12
It cracked the window and blocked the door
13
With bacon rinds and chicken bones
14
Drippy ends of ice cream cones
15
Prune pits, peach pits, orange peels
16
Gloppy glumps of cold oatmeal
17
Pizza crusts and withered greens
18
Soggy beans and tangerines
19
Crusts of black burned buttered toast
20
Grisly bits of beefy roast.
21
The garbage rolled on down the halls,
22
It raised the roof, it broke the walls,
23
I mean greasy napkins, cookie crumbs,
24
Blobs of gooey bubble gum,
25
Cellophane from old bologna,
26
Rubbery, blubbery macaroni,
27
Peanut butter caked and dry,
28
Curdled milk and crusts of pie,
29
Rotten melons, dried up mustard,
30
Egg shells mixed with lemon custard,
31
Cold French fries and rancid meat,
32
Yellow lumps of Cream of Wheat.
33
At last the garbage reached so high
That finally It touched The Sky,
34
And none of her friends would come to play
35
And all of her neighbors moved away
36
And finally Sarah Cynthia Stout
  • Said Okay, Ill take the garbage out!

37
But then of course it was too late,
  • The garbage reached across the state,
  • From New York to the Golden Gate

38
And there in the garbage she did hate
  • Poor Sarah met an awful fate
  • That I cannot right here relate
  • Because the hour is much too late
  • But children, remember Sarah Stout,
  • And always take the garbage out.

39
So what is the takeaway message?
  • Pope Francis said The Earth, our home, is
    beginning to look more and more like an immense
    pile of filth. In many parts of the planet, the
    elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are
    now covered with rubbish. Industrial waste and
    chemical products utilised in cities and
    agricultural areas can lead to bioaccumulation in
    the organisms of the local population, even when
    levels of toxins in those places are low.
    Frequently no measures are taken until after
    peoples health has been irreversibly affected.
