Short Kids Poem: Garbage Truck

short kids poem garbage truck

The garbage truck howled
and rolled down our street
while searching the curb
for fresh trash to eat.

A kind humble beast
with two blinking eyes
and large steal teeth
surrounded by flies.

Leaving recycling
it ate all the rest,
from tacos to bolts
— and even a chest!

It’s so important
it always stays fed…
or it might just eat
a mailbox instead.
