The Litter Bug
Heart of America Council


Paper Crackle, crackle

Cans Clatter, clatter

Trash Dump, dump

Litter Bug Toss and Throw


God put bugs in this world for many reasons,

He made them to live in every kind of season.

But the pesky Litter Bug, with his Paper and Cans

Was made through neglected Trash  by the foolish man.

To keep our land beautiful, get rid of that Litter Bug,

So beach goers can again lounge on a clean, sand rug.

Because of this pest, we must walk around
in Paper and Cans and Trash  on the ground.

Just who are the Litter Bugs who mess up our land?

Do you really ever see them toss that Paper or Can?

And in dumping his Trash he is very sly.

So most of the time it just appears there,

As if it had dropped right out of thin air.

Could it be we are so used to throwing things there,

That we dump Paper AND Cans without being aware?

Without even thinking when we toss Trash and waste,

We could be a LitterBug in all of our haste.

So when you unwrap that gum or candy,

Donít throw down the Paper just because it is handy.

Next time stop and think when itís pop Cans you toss,

íCause if youíre a Litter Bug itís also your loss

If every single person would take note of his habit

That pesky LitterBug we could certainly nab it.

Then that terrible bug we could surely stamp it out,

With no more Paper or Cans or Trash about

to keep our land beautiful we must all do our part,

By taking care of our Trash properly from the start.
